Important waste industrial action update: temporary suspension of recycling services

Information from Wiltshire Council

Some Hills Municipal Collection workers are currently taking strike action, and this is due to continue until 18 March.

As a result, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend mixed dry recycling (blue-lidded bin) and glass (black box) collections between 7 and 18 March. If you have already put out your blue-lidded bin and black box for collection, please take them back in until your next scheduled collection date.

We will collect additional recycling on or after 21 March, in your blue-lidded bin and black box. Alternatively, you can take waste that will not fit in your bin to any of our household recycling centres.

Put your household waste and garden waste bins out on your scheduled collection day.

Please note: this change does not affect your general household waste or garden waste collections. During the industrial action period please continue to put your household and garden waste bins out by 7am on your scheduled collection day. If you’re not sure what day your collections are, visit the calendar page on our website and enter your postcode. If a household or garden waste bin is not emptied as scheduled, please leave it out and it will be emptied the following day, where possible.
