Gearing up for major bin collection changes this summer

People living in Daventry District are encouraged to find out more about major changes to their waste and recycling collections launching this summer.

The new 123+ waste and recycling collection service will start in June 2018, delivered by Daventry Norse, a new joint venture between Daventry District Council (DDC) and Norse Commercial Services Ltd.

From June 2018 households in Daventry District will receive:

  • 1 weekly food waste collection
  • 2 weekly mixed recycling collection in a new blue-lidded wheelie bin
  • 3 weekly general waste black bin collection
  • + Plus an optional 2-weekly garden waste service for an annual fee of £35 a year.

The changes are being introduced as Daventry District cannot afford to carry on with its current waste and recycling service, both environmentally and financially. Changing black bin collections from fortnightly to three-weekly will help encourage more recycling and reduce the money spent on treating and disposing of rubbish.

The Council will also be improving the recycling service to help residents slim their bins, introducing a new wheelie bin for mixed recycling that provides more space over two weeks than the current recycling boxes collected weekly.

It is likely that collection days will change for households from June 2018 in order to introduce the new service arrangements across the District. Further details will be provided to all households nearer to the time, including an information pack and new calendar.
