Changes for Plymouth Bin Collections from 8th May 2017; A Cleaner and Greener Plymouth

Posted on May 3rd, 2017

From 8 May 2017, Plymouth City Council are changing bin collections so that brown bins and bags – or normal household rubbish – will be picked up one week and the green bins and bags – or recycling – will be picked up the next.

The changes will lead to an increase in recycling rates, a more efficient service and a renewed sense of enthusiasm for Plymouth becoming a cleaner and greener city.

Residents will have received letters which set out what weeks their brown and green bins and bags will be collected as well as their garden waste collection, which from 8 May 2017 run on a separate round.

To help make the new system a success, residents are being asked to:

  • Follow the guidance on the letter the Council has sent them to find out when they need to put their bin out and bring it back in.
  • Not leave rubbish next to their bin – it will not be collected.
  • Flatten items such as plastic milk cartons and cardboard boxes to create more room in their recycling bin.
