Changes to recycling and refuse collections

Over spring and summer 2013, Trafford Council will be introducing a weekly collection of food and garden waste in the green bin and a fortnightly collection of non-recyclable waste in the grey bin.

We are making changes to your collections so it is easier for you to recycle more of your food waste meaning less waste is sent to landfill. Rotting food in landfill produces methane gas which contributes to climate change and as the cost of sending waste to landfill is increasing you will help the Council and residents save over £1 million every year. These changes will also help us to increase our recycling rate to over 60% by 2015.

Please watch the below film for further information on the new recycling and refuse service.

Please see below for answers to all your frequently asked questions and for when the services will change in your area.
