Gearing up for major bin collection changes this summer

People living in Daventry District are encouraged to find out more about major changes to their waste and recycling collections launching this summer.

The new 123+ waste and recycling collection service will start in June 2018, delivered by Daventry Norse, a new joint venture between Daventry District Council (DDC) and Norse Commercial Services Ltd.

From June 2018 households in Daventry District will receive:

1 weekly food waste collection

2 weekly mixed recycling collection in a new blue-lidded wheelie bin

3 weekly general waste black bin collection

+ Plus an optional 2-weekly garden waste service for an annual fee of £35 a year.

The changes are being introduced as Daventry District cannot afford to carry on with its current waste and recycling service, both environmentally and financially. Changing black bin collections from fortnightly to three-weekly will help encourage more recycling and reduce the money spent on treating and disposing of rubbish.

The Council will also be improving the recycling service to help residents slim their bins, introducing a new wheelie bin for mixed recycling that provides more space over two weeks than the current recycling boxes collected weekly.

It is likely that collection days will change for households from June 2018 in order to introduce the new service arrangements across the District. Further details will be provided to all households nearer to the time, including an information pack and new calendar.

Full details are available on Daventry’s website or alternatively you can view and download a leaflet, which includes how to sign up for the Garden Waste collection service, from here.

Welcome to Guilsborough Parish Council’s Website

Over the coming months this site will be developed  with more pages being added containing all the relevant information about us and what we are doing, so please do come back and visit us regularly.

Eventually you will find information not only regarding the Parish Council but also activities, organisations and who to contact regarding them. There is access to agendas, meeting minutes and planning applications plus there will be other information made public under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

However, our immediate focus is on the development of a Neighbourhood Plan. We need our parishioners to become involved with this important document by attending public meetings and participating in our surveys. Please look out for notices and leaflets with more information and take the time to help us with this. Ultimately it will enable us to have more of a say on what happens to our village. There’s more information on the Neighbourhood Plan page.

If you would like to receive an email notification of our meetings, meetings of the GNP steering committee or when we receive any new alerts please sign up by completing the on-line form which can be here.
