Look out for your leaflet


Leaflet for Christchurch and East Dorset residents about changes to recycling and rubbish collections this October

If you live Christchurch or parts of East Dorset, you should be receiving a letter and leaflet in the next few weeks about changes to your recycling and rubbish collections.

The changes come into place in October, when the new ‘recycle for Dorset’ service will replace existing services in these areas.

With the new service you will be able to recycle more at home, including cardboard and plastic packaging, will have food waste collected every week and have the option to subscribe to a fortnightly, paid-for garden waste collection.

Your leaflet explains what the new service will look like, including the new containers, and what will happen next. Most people will be able to use the ‘standard’ service, but if there’s a reason this won’t work for your property or needs, you can apply for a non-standard service.

The new service is being introduced in phases across Dorset (not including Bournemouth and Poole) between this October and 2015.  Keep an eye on this blog for updates.

Which part of East Dorset?

The part of East Dorset that will change to the new service in October includes Ameysford, Ashley Heath, Colehill, Ferndown, Longham, Parley, Stapehill, St Leonards and St Ives, Three Legged Cross, Verwood, West Moors and Wimborne.

    We got our new bins and leaflets this week.
    All is good, just one quick question… Can we recycle photo paper or, for example, the paper that comes on the back of the stickers for our new bins?!

    Looking forward to the new service. Hurray for recycling in Dorset!

    Hi Katie
    Glad to hear you’re happy with your new bins! Unfortunately you can’t currently recycle photgraphic paper with your other paper because of the chemicals it is treated with and a plastic element in the paper. But you never know, this may change in the future.
