West Suffolk Council announces changes to bin collection days and times
Changes are planned to bin collection days and times in West Suffolk.
From November 11, more than half of households will see a change of day to their collection of blue and black bins and those keeping the same day will see a change of time.
Brown bin collections will stay the same and yellow tags will be placed on black bins to alert residents.
Cllr Peter Stevens, cabinet member for operations, said it is part of a review to find ‘extra capacity, save money and waste miles and continue to provide an excellent service’.
He added: "We will be writing to every household in good time, giving details of their new collection day together with a calendar to help make the transition.
"We are putting yellow tags on the black bins to alert residents to look out for the letter that will arrive shortly.
"Full details will also be available on our website nearer the time, and we will be doing all we can to help households make the change."
