Cotswold District Council is working hard to deliver bins to the small number of households in the District which have yet to receive their containers for the new waste and recycling collection service.
Collections under the new service started on Monday, 23rd June, but a few residents are still waiting for their containers, including grey wheeled bins or beige bin bags for the fortnightly collection of non-recyclable landfill waste.
Cllr Mark Tufnell, Portfolio Holder for the Environment, said: “More than 98% of households have received their bins and bags and are recycling much more of their rubbish as a result."
“However, we fully appreciate how frustrating it is for those few remaining residents who are still awaiting their deliveries and we apologise to them for that."
“It is inevitable in a project involving more than 38,000 properties across 450 square miles that there will be some problems and I would like to thank residents for the patience and tolerance they have shown.”
Special waste collections have been arranged for properties which have not yet received their new containers.
The Council is also posting out small supplies of beige bin bags to these householders which they can use for the collection of non-recyclable waste under the new service until their containers are delivered.
Cllr Tufnell added: “We are putting on extra crews to send out the remaining bins to ensure they are delivered as soon as possible.”
