 Garden Waste collection to restart in Cotswold District

Cotswold District Council has announced that fortnightly garden waste collections will restart from Wednesday 13 May.

Cllr Andrew Doherty, Cabinet Member for Waste and Recycling, said: “Over the last few weeks we have needed to use our garden waste vehicles and crews to support the main waste and recycling collections while some staff have had to take time off sick, to self-isolate or to look after loved ones affected by Covid-19. During that time our team has worked hard, alongside our waste partner Ubico, to find a way to return these vehicles and crews to their normal rounds.

Dear friends and Community

Our team at The Crown of Crucis want to do something positive to help our fantastic Local Community, to stop you having to go to a high-risk supermarket and stand in line for hours for your weekly shop.

With the help of our local suppliers we have developed two non-profit essential grocery boxes (milk, bread, cheese fresh fruit and veg, butter etc) either for two persons for £30 or for four persons for £60. Both are generous boxes of items to get you through. We can build the list of items as we go, including toilet roll and other essentials depending on what is available.

Covid-19: Recycling and Waste Services Update

Cotswold District Council is calling on all residents to present their recycling correctly and do all they can to limit the amount of waste they are generating while social distancing measures are in place.

The Council’s waste collection contractor, Ubico, is working incredibly hard to ensure essential services continue whilst residents adhere to government guidance and stay at home to support the measures limiting the spread of Coronavirus.
