Green bin collection

Good morning

Letters are currently being sent out to all residents with their new monthly garden waste collection dates.

Letters are being sent out in stages over the next couple of weeks (with residents with nearer collections being prioritised first) – not all residents will receive them at the same time.

Unfortunately, despite sending out letters a week in advance of collections that have restarted today (on a 2-day mail service) it's been flagged to us that residents aren't receiving them in time. We understand Royal Mail are having staffing issues of their own at sorting offices and this is likely to be the cause of the delay, which is out of our hands.

In light of this, and in the absence of timely letters, this is our advice to residents:
If in doubt put your bin out!
Garden waste collections are back 😊… but our letters are stuck in the mail ☹

Here's a few pointers to help you understand when your monthly collection is:
•Your garden bin will be collected on one of the next two recycling/garden waste collection dates marked on your calendar
•It's 50/50 whether it's the first date or second date listed – so there's no harm in putting your garden waste bin out on both dates
•If you're in any doubt put your bin out!
If you want to check your garden waste collection date for certain we're updating this webpage daily with more dates and addresses: www.nwleics.gov.uk/collection_addresses
We're pushing out social media on this but anything you can do to share this message is appreciated.
We understand that this is a little complicated – which is one of the main reasons we wanted to send the letters! We're hoping the Royal Mail catch up quickly and this delay in postage doesn't continue for letters still being sent out, but we simply can't guarantee this.
