Stirling Council Letter about the new wheelie bins
Dear Community Council
Stirling Council Waste Services – Improved Collection System
Stirling Council Waste Services are introducing your improved collection system over the coming weeks and months and I am writing to inform you that distribution of the new recycling containers for Plastics/Cans and Garden/Food waste will start on Monday 5th September 2016 and will be rolled out over a 6 to 8 week period. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide exact details of when containers will be delivered in each area as this is being coordinated by our distribution contractor however I can confirm that distribution will start in urban areas before moving on to rural. When the new containers arrive they will include a full-service guide, collection calendar and bin stickers. We would ask that residents read these carefully as they provide important information regarding the improved collection service. In addition, we will also be replacing the ‘my bins’ page on our website with a map containing details of the new collection dates. The map will be made live within the next few weeks.
For clarification, residents will no longer require brown boxes which are currently used for card or outdoor food caddies. These containers will be collected by the service when bin distribution is complete across the Stirling Council area. However, please note that collection of brown boxes and outdoor food caddies may be done at the point of bin delivery for properties with designated areas for bin storage to allow space for the new containers e.g. flatted properties.
As we progress the implementation of the improved collection model it is likely that there will be some disruption to collection services during this period and we are grateful for the public’s support and patience during this time. We are keen to ensure our customers are supported during this transition period and our Officers will be joining the distribution crews to ensure they are on hand at the point of bin delivery to answer any questions or concerns in relation to the improved collection system.
I would be grateful if you could share this information within your community and direct any enquiries to our contact centre on 01786 404040. Alternatively, further information can be found on our website at http:stirling.gov.uk/waste
