When will waste collection get back to normal?

Most waste due to be collected on Monday was picked up as scheduled. The only exception was recycling in the Naburn area.

The expectation was that the new waste collection lorries – due to arrive early next year – would provide a boost for recycling.

However it seems that hopes that additional capacity might lead to the collection of a greater variety of recyclable items may be dashed. There has been no discussion with Councillors about the configuration of the new lorries. There seems to be little prospect of the collection of, for example, food waste being introduced.

Indeed once source at the York Council is saying that – like the Leeds Council – the separate collection of glass may be abandoned. Instead residents would be asked to return bottles to the “bring sites” which are located across the City.

It is likely that such a policy would lead to a further reduction in the proportion of waste that is recycled in the City.
