Press Release - Blaby District Council

Bin form opens for ordering

The opportunity for residents in the District of Blaby to order larger or additional bins for their household in anticipation of the new alternate weekly bin service is now available.

Giving all residents the chance to order larger or extra bins is part of the plans revealed by Blaby District Council, with the new alternate weekly service set to begin on Monday 02 July. Those who would like a larger or additional bin can visit www.blaby.gov.uk/waste2018 to fill in the form. More »

To have the best chance of getting new bins before the service begins residents are encouraged to order before midnight on Sunday 06 May. As part of the new service bin capacity will become dependent on household size. Larger or additional bins over a household's standard capacity will cost £17.50 per bin, regardless of the type and size of bin.

Delivery of bins is planned to take place throughout May and June. Residents will be encouraged to sign up to email alerts when filling in the form so they can be notified of when their bin will be delivered to their property.

A dedicated telephone number of 0116 272 7790 has also been set up for those who cannot access the online form. Those ordering over the phone will have until 4:45pm on Friday 04 May to have the best chance of getting their bins before the new scheme begins.

Blaby District Council's move to an alternate weekly collection follows the loss of £505,000 in recycling credits from Leicestershire County Council and £240,000 in a central government grant to run weekly recycling collections. Nearly 9,000 residents responded to a consultation between October-November 2017 to help shape the new service.

For full details on what each household is eligible for, and to order bins before the new service begins, please visit www.blaby.gov.uk/waste2018. » Less
