Over the next few weeks you will be receiving your new recycling wheelie bin ready for Guildford Borough Council’s Recycling More service starting in September. The project aims to help the council reach a whopping 70% recycling rate by 2015 and makes your life easier as you simply pop all your clean recycling into one bin rather than having to sort paper, card, cans, glass, etc into separate boxes which to my mind can only be a good thing.
Please rest assured that the council will still collect food waste every week, and refuse and small electrical items every fortnight, on alternate weeks to recycling collections. They will also collect textiles, batteries, and garden waste (from subscribers) on the same day as your recycling collections.
You will also be able to request a different size bin, a second bin, a food waste caddy if you don’t have one, or tell the council if you don’t have room for another bin. The council will supply sacks if we have assessed a property and found it is not suitable for bins.
