Covid-19: Recycling and waste services update

Cllr. Andrew

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.

Cllr Andrew, Cabinet Member for Waste and Recycling, said: “To deliver services and minimise the risk to the crews, we ask all residents to present their waste and recycling correctly. Information on the new collection service and how to present food, waste and recycling at the kerbside can be found on the Council’s website.

“Unsurprisingly, with many of our residents adjusting to social distancing and working from home, there has been an increase in recycling. We are particularly seeing a significant increase in food waste being presented for collection. It’s important that residents try to limit waste during this crisis, to allow our people to cope with increased demand.

“Covid-19 does impact the availability of our staff. They have to self-isolate, take time-off sick and support their families in the same way as the rest of us. We ask for your patience at this time and ask that you check our website for updates before phoning to report missed collections. I would like to thank all of our residents for bearing with us during this disruption.”
