Information from Argyll & Bute Council which is a tad confusing for Kintyre residents as we have a different system here but the bottom line is your green bin only will be collected from now on - no recycling being collected as per post above.

Waste and recycling

The new guidelines for coronavirus advice will impact on council services, and that includes waste and recycling services. From as public health perspective, we are required to prioritise domestic waste collections and we are making plans to ensure we do everything we can to keep to our planned schedule. This means changing how we work, and even then we may not always get to you on the day we plan. We will catch up and details will be put on our website.

However, to ensure we have enough people to do what we need to do, and keep them safe, these are the changes we have to make:

· From 24th March onwards, we will only be collecting green bins from households

· We will suspend household glass and food collections;

· We are closing civic amenity sites so we can prioritise operating our landfill sites;

· We are suspending commercial waste collections for those that are closed. There will be one more pick-up. We will continue uplifts for premises that remain open for example supermarkets, pharmacies etc; and

· We are suspending our recycling uplifts (blue bins and bags).

Please continue to leave out your green bins, but keep your recycling at home.

Please understand, this is not a decision we have taken lightly. We know this will be inconvenient, but please try and store your recycling somewhere until we are able to put alternative arrangements in plac

Update on bin collections

We appreciate your co-operation and patience as we make changes to our waste collection services during the coronavirus (COVID 19) pandemic. This is to make sure that we have enough resources to deliver critical services in a way that meets government guidelines and keeps the public and our staff safe.

We are continually monitoring the resources available and will let you know if more become available.

Meantime, please continue to put your general waste bins out as normal. You can check when it’s next due to go out here: https://www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/planning-and-…/bin-collection . However, if it takes us a bit longer than usual to collect it, please bear with us and leave it out. We will get there.

It’s understandable there are some concerns that we cannot uplift recycling materials at the moment. Here are some things you can do to store safely your recyclate at home until it can be uplifted:

Make sure you wash out plastic bottles (especially milk bottles) and trays thoroughly.

Squash plastic bottles and then put the lid back on.

Stack trays the same size inside each other to save space.

Flatten cardboard boxes and paper.

If you can, crush your cans.

Rinse and flatten Tetrapaks (juice cartons etc).

Once your bin/bag is full, please start storing the recycling in plastic bags, or inside large cardboard boxes, in a dry place.
