The York Council is introducing new waste and green recycling collection timetables from next Monday (9th September).
Some households will receive recycling for the first time and others may have changes to what day of the week their rubbish, recycling or green waste is collected
About 10% of properties will see a change to their collections days.
The Council says that it has written to every affected household explaining the new collection days.
Given the past record of the York Council with communications, we are sceptical about whether everyone will have had, and understood, their communication.
A complete list of addresses (10639 of them) were sent out to ward Councillors as late as 2:00pm today Friday 6th September.
That is less than 1 working day before the new arrangements are due to be introduced.
The complete list of affected properties can be viewed by clicking here.
It is in alphabetical street order.
Alternatively, you should also be able to check out the day that your next collection is due by entering your postcode at this web location http://tinyurl.com/York-bin
Roads in the Westfield area that are affected include:
• Beagle Ridge Drive (change of week)
• Beechwood Glade (change of week)
• Cedarwood Close (change of week)
• Huntsman’s Walk (change of week)
• Maplewood Paddock (change of week)
• Thornwood Covert (change of week)
The Council says, “It is important to continue to ensure that your rubbish, recycling and garden waste are presented before 7am on the day of collection”.
