wheelie bin collection days set to change
WIRRAL residents are being urged to keep their eyes on their letterboxes over the next two weeks as important details about their bin collections are being delivered.
For many households, the latest calendars will show changes in the days that their green and grey wheelie bins are collected.
This is because Wirral Council and its contractor Biffa have restructured collection rounds to make the service more efficient.
The new collection dates are effective from Monday, November 16, with delivery of the new calendars set to begin from this weekend.
The calendars will set out collection days for both green and grey bins for the next two years.
If people havenít received their new calendars by November 15, they should contact Streetscene on 606 2004.
From November 14, residents will also be able to find out details of their collection dates on the Waste and Recycling page of the Wirral Council website by typing in their street name.
Cllr Jean Quinn, cabinet member for Streetscene and transport services, said: "A lot of work has been put into ensuring that, where collections days are changing, there is a smooth transition.
"However, a large part of this process will be reliant on residents reading their calendars and heeding the advice, ensuring the right bin goes out on the right day."
Redesigning the bin collection routes will bring a number of environmental benefits and savings to tax payers, the council said.
Cllr Gill Gardiner, cabinet member for environment, said: "The changes will reduce the number of miles the collection crews have to travel, which will mean a reduction in the amount of fuel they use, which will both save money and help the environment." THE GLOBE
