CHANGES TO BROWN BIN COLLECTION SERVICES first announced last June, are due to be implemented by the East Riding Council in the next few weeks following a considerable delay.
NOTE: Residents are asked to wait until they receive official information from the Council before they start adding any new items to any bins.
Residents will soon be receiving information packs including a calendar stating collection days. All households will recieve a kitchen caddy and biodegradable liners for their food waste which they can use to transport the food waste to the big brown bin.
The changes to the Brown bin collection service was piloted in Hessle last year and the roll-out to other areas was due to start in the Hedon and Withernsea areas first in September 2010. However, what a council spokesperson described as "logistical problems" resulted in the implementation being delayed.
In the first full 12 months after the roll-out, council officers are predicting that 7,100 tonnes of food waste and 2,100 of cardboard will be collected from the brown bins and sent for composting. A total of 9,300 tonnes will be composted instead of being sent to landfill.
