06 November 2017Christmas waste and recycling collection arrangements

General collection arrangements

With the exception of Christmas Day (which falls on a Monday) all collections over the Christmas and New Year period will take place on their usual days.

There will be no collections on Christmas Day (Monday 25 December), so anyone who would have been due a collection on that day will receive a collection on Christmas Eve instead (Sunday 24 December).

Black bins will continue to be collected as normal on their fortnightly cycle. Please make sure you recycle as much as possible as side waste and bins with raised lids will not be collected.

Brown bins will be suspended for two weeks from Christmas Eve until Saturday, 6 January inclusive. This will enable crews to focus on collecting extra recycling. Please refer to your collections calendar as to when your brown bin will be collected next.

Recycling boxes and food bins will continue to be collected weekly for all households on their usual collection day.

Large cardboard will be collected for two weeks from Christmas Eve until and Saturday, 6 January inclusive. If you have large cardboard and it won’t fit in your recycling box, please flatten it as much as possible and place next to your boxes on your collection day. Please do not place it inside another cardboard box.

Extra recycling can also be put out for collection over Christmas. If you have more recycling than your boxes can hold, please continue to sort your items and place them into clear or white bags next to your boxes (not black or green sacks). Don’t forget that you can recycle a range of festive items, including Christmas cards, wrapping paper, sweet tins and drinks bottles.

Real Christmas trees will be collected on your scheduled brown bin collection day when the service resumes (w/c Monday, 15 January 2018 for the majority of homes in Daventry District). Please break it up and put it into your brown bin or place the tree next to your brown bin or recycling boxes. Alternatively take it to your local household waste recycling centre

Please note there are no communal collection points for real Christmas trees and they are only collected from households, not businesses or other premises.

Daventry District Council’s offices and Contact Centre will be closed from Saturday, 23 December, reopening on Tuesday, 2 January.

25 October 2017Northamptonshire Libraries and Information Service Review 2017 Consultation

Northamptonshire Libraries and Information Service Review 2017 Consultation

Northamptonshire County Council needs to find £115m savings over the next four years predominantly to meet social care costs in the county.  The Library and Information Service must share in this financial challenge and seek to reduce costs to the tax payer.  The low cost per visit compared to other library services demonstrates that this cannot be achieved by further efficiencies alone, and requires a more fundamental reshaping of the service to ensure it is fit for the future.

The review of the library service will comprehensively examine the current Northamptonshire Library and Information Service as it operates over its current 36 static and one mobile site against four measures of accessibility, quality, availability and sustainability in line with the review approach recommended by the National Libraries Taskforce.  It will examine key statistics and trends within the service before setting out options about how a future library service may be shaped.  It will test these proposals against the common design principles of library services and consider the impact of the proposals on the residents of Northamptonshire.  This consultation and its outcomes will play a significant part in informing the new library strategy 2018-2022.

What might change?

We are consulting upon three options for the future of the Library and Information Service. Each section of the questionnaire gives more detail on what the options mean.

Option 1

Develop community-managed library model to be offered to all other current library communities

Retain countywide digital, information and business offer

Retain 15 libraries and further develop as community hubs – 8 large libraries, 7 medium libraries

Investigate potential future library service provision to additional location in Corby

Extend Library to You to replace Mobile Library

The mobile library would be withdrawn from service.

The remaining libraries would be closed, including the universal Children's Centres services delivered in those libraries.  Expressions of interest from community groups, organisations or businesses wishing to establish a community-managed library are invited via their county councillor.  These community-managed libraries would sit outside of the statutory library service offered by the Council.

 

Option 2

Retain countywide digital, information and business offer

Retain 15 libraries and further develop as community hubs – 8 large libraries, 7 medium libraries

Investigate potential future library service provision to additional location in Corby

Extend Library to You to replace Mobile Library

The mobile library would be withdrawn from service. 

The remaining libraries would be closed, including the universal Children's Centres services delivered in those libraries.

 

Option 3

Retain countywide digital, information and business offer

Retain 8 libraries and further develop as community hubs

Extend Library to You to replace Mobile Library

The mobile library would be withdrawn from service

The remaining libraries would be closed, including the universal Children's Centres services delivered in those libraries

 

In all three options, libraries with Children’s Centre designation are proposed for closure so it is important to consider the full range of services provided at the libraries when thinking about each of the proposals. Details of the proposals, copies of the Cabinet Paper and information about each library at risk of closure can be found on our web site.

How to give your views

We want to hear your views about these options to understand the possible impact of the proposals and what would be the best way forward for the Library and Information Service in Northamptonshire.

Please visit our web site for all of the different ways you can give your feedback to these proposals, including our online questionnaire and public events.

This consultation closes at 5pm on 13th January 2018.
