Posted: Thu, 18 Oct 2018 19:12 by Lucy Flavin

On October 1st 2018 Biffa commenced their new waste contract with Melton Borough Council.

In addition to safer, more efficient vehicles and optimised routes, the service now operates an enhanced recycling service with textiles and small electrical items being taken alongside the regular recycling collection. This includes items such as clothing, curtains, bed sheets, blankets and towels. They will not accept duvets, pillows, cushions, shoes, rugs and carpets. Residents are asked to place their textiles in a standard sized carrier bag next to their brown bin before 7:30am on the day of your recycling collection. More »

Small electricals include items such as toasters, kettles, radios and hairdryers. They will not take low energy lightbulbs, TV screens and computer monitors or anything that does not fit into a standard sized carrier bag. For a full list please visit the council's website at www.melton.gov.uk/whatgoesinmybin. Please do not mix your textiles and electrical items in the same bag. Please do not put any recyclable items into black bags as they cannot be recycled and won't be collected. » Less
