Just a reminder that the new 140-litre wheelie bins for recycling paper, metals and plastics will start to be delivered to households from tomorrow.

The bags and bins will be delivered over a period of six weeks and will come with an information brochure and a collection calendar.

The new kerbside recycling collection service will begin from 16 May and CitiOperations Manager Mike Mendonca says it is important people do not put their wheelie bin or recycling bags out before this date.

"People's recycling collection day will remain the same - however, the wheelie bins and bags will be collected on alternate weeks to the glass recycling crate. People will need to refer to the calendar they receive to see which recycling to put out each week."

For those properties which have been assessed as unsuitable for receiving a wheelie bin due to terrain and/or access problems, an initial supply of 26 recycling bags will be delivered instead, with more available if required.
