08 March 2018123+ waste and recycling collection service

Gearing up for major bin collection changes this summer

People living in Daventry District are encouraged to find out more about major changes to their waste and recycling collections launching this summer.

The new 123+ waste and recycling collection service will start in June 2018, delivered by Daventry Norse, a new joint venture between Daventry District Council (DDC) and Norse Commercial Services Ltd.

From June 2018 households in Daventry District will receive:

1 weekly food waste collection

2 weekly mixed recycling collection in a new blue-lidded wheelie bin

3 weekly general waste black bin collection

+ Plus an optional 2-weekly garden waste service for an annual fee of £35 a year.

The changes are being introduced as Daventry District cannot afford to carry on with its current waste and recycling service, both environmentally and financially. Changing black bin collections from fortnightly to three-weekly will help encourage more recycling and reduce the money spent on treating and disposing of rubbish.

The Council will also be improving the recycling service to help residents slim their bins, introducing a new wheelie bin for mixed recycling that provides more space over two weeks than the current recycling boxes collected weekly.

It is likely that collection days will change for households from June 2018 in order to introduce the new service arrangements across the District. Further details will be provided to all households nearer to the time, including an information pack and new calendar.

A series of public awareness exhibitions and roadshows are also being planned to take place across the district this spring – further details to be published soon.

Further information on the new service is being issued to homes as part of the Coucil’s spring Daventry Calling residents’ magazine and people can also learn more about the changes, including a series of FAQs, on the Council’s website at daventrydc.gov.uk/binchanges.

Daventry District Council’s Environment Portfolio Holder Councillor Jo Gilford said: “These changes to our District’s bin collections this summer are considerable yet crucial.

“We need to do more to increase recycling rates and we cannot afford to keep the status quo of the current collection service as the cost would effectively double.

“The three-weekly black bin collection will support our goals to improve our environment by encouraging more people to recycle as much of their waste as possible.

“We understand some residents will be concerned about whether they will cope with an extra week between collections. However we are confident that the improved recycling service and weekly food waste collections will really help people to slim their black bins.”

Norse Commercial Services Group Director of Operations Mark Emms said: “Norse is delighted to be in partnership with Daventry District Council and is working hard in planning the re-design and delivery of these important front line services to local residents. We are busy investing in new vehicles, equipment and system design to allow local teams to deliver the 123+ changes to household refuse and recycling schedules that will start to improve recycling performance from June.”

08 March 2018DDC's Local Lotto

Daventry District Council’s Local Lotto is now open for charities, sports clubs, and community groups to sign up to.

Groups that sign up can generate a modest income for themselves by encouraging their members and supporters to buy a weekly ticket and elect for 40p of the ticket price to go to their good cause.

Ticket buyers also have the chance to win prizes from £5 to £25,000 in the weekly draw. The sign up process is very simple. Just go to www.local-lotto.co.uk and click on the ‘good causes’ button.

You will be asked to provide some information about your cause and need to include some ‘marketing blurb’ that will appear on your webpage. This needs to say what you will spend your lotto income on, to encourage ticket buyers to support your cause. You can also upload your logo if you have one. If you don’t have a logo, many groups upload a photo instead. If you get stuck with the sign up process, there is a telephone helpline 01327 577707.
