GREEN waste bin collections are starting again from Monday in Trafford.

Households are initially limited to the collection of two bins per household each week.

Green bins should be presented for collection on the scheduled bin collection day only.

And from Monday, July 27, households can present all of their green bins for collection each week.

Residents should place their scheduled blue, black or grey bins out for collection as normal by 6.30am on their usual collection day.

And then each week they should put out their green bin or green street caddy.

If households have more than one green bin, refuse collectors will only empty a maximum of two green bins presented for collection per household.

From Monday, July 27, you can present all of your green bins

A council spokesman said: "We’ll try and empty as many green bins as possible.

"If we are unable to empty your green bin, please report it within two working days of when it should have been collected. Report it online or call 03330 035865.

"After you have logged it, please leave your bin out and we will empty it as soon as possible.

"Please put all of your food and garden waste in your green bin

"With our resources stretched, any waste that is left to the side or on top of your bins will not be accepted

"You can contact us to report a missed collection of your green, blue, black and grey bins. Please report any missed bins within two working days of when they should have been collected."

Cllr Stephen Adshead, environment executive member, said: "Emptying the bins during the coronavirus pandemic is one of our highest priorities, and our waste crews have gone out every day, in what is a difficult situation.

"While the staffing situation could change quickly, we are currently able to return to a weekly collection service for green bins.

"Everyone should recycle all of their food and garden waste in the green bin. We will try and empty as many green bins as possible, but we ask that you continue to bear with us during this difficult time.

"Green bins should be presented each week for collection on the scheduled bin collection day alongside other scheduled bins – grey, black or blue.”
