Changes to collection services

From 2 April Cornwall Council will be making changes to householders rubbish, recycling and garden waste collections in Cornwall. All households will receive information about the new services, so everyone will need to keep an eye out for the leaflets and keep them safe.

Rubbish Collections
For most households the rubbish collection service will remain the same using a weekly “black sack” service. However, we will have to change a number of collection days to make the new collection rounds as efficient as possible. 
 Anyone who currently has a wheeled bin or used a standard rubbish bin for storing their waste, will still be able to use this, but we need the rubbish to be bagged inside the bins, when they put out for collection.

Recycling Collections
There will be a new fortnightly recycling collection service, based on a recycling box and three reusable bags.
Some areas of Cornwall already have some of this equipment. We do not intend to waste taxpayer’s money by replacing existing reusable boxes and bags with new ones, so we will only be delivering new equipment in specific areas to ensure all householders have the full set of containers to help them to recycle.

Former North Cornwall

This new system will replace the current arrangements of different coloured disposable plastic sacks.
We will deliver a black recycling box for glass, a blue reusable sack for paper, a red reusable sack for cans and plastic bottles, an orange reusable sack for cardboard and we will collect textiles in plastic bags that the householder must provide themselves.
This new system will replace the current arrangements of different coloured disposable plastic sacks.
