RBWM Residents’ Newsletter

Weekly bin collections update

Weekly household waste and recycling collections will resume from Monday 17 August.

RBWM have taken this opportunity to review collection routes to make them more efficient and environmentally friendly.

For some residents, this means that the bin collection day will change. All residents will receive a letter with further information and confirmation of whether or not the collection day is changing, prior to Monday 17 August. For the majority of residents, there will be no change to the bin collection day, however the time of collection may be different, so please ensure bins are out by 7am.

Once weekly collections resume, RBWM will not be collecting excess waste or recycling on collection day and all rubbish should be in bins before the crews arrive.

Garden waste collections

RBWM are making changes to garden waste collections to make them more efficient and environmentally friendly.

From 17 August, garden waste will be collected in the same vehicle as recycling waste. The vehicle is split-backed so the waste goes into separate compartments. This means that for some garden waste subscribers, your collection week will change. If this is the case, you will receive a letter with details of the changes before 17 August.
