Changes to your rubbish collection services from 6 November 2017 - you should have received your personalised letter in March
We have written to you to let you know how the changes affect you - your letter let you know whether we have allocated your property a wheeled bin or re-usable rubbish bag, and the frequency of your rubbish collection. Most residents will have received this letter with their Council Tax Bill which was mailed out from 9 March.
You can check your bin allocation by entering your address here www.bathnes.gov.uk/recycle
Container allocation reminder – 5 May deadline for queries
Just to remind you that you have until 5 May 2017 to contact us if you have any queries with the container allocated to you in the letter we sent to you in March. If despite recycling all you can, you feel that your household will not manage with your allocated container, please complete the online form at www.bathnes.gov.uk/bin by 5 May.

Calling all recyclers - we want to hear from you.
How do you do it in your home/school/workplace?
We need all kinds of resident recyclers to star in our campaign in 2017. Instead of using generic pictures, we want real Bath and North East Somerset residents! We want you to show us how you recycle, to encourage others to recycle more, and to help them get ready for the change to every other week rubbish collections starting in November.
We want your stories, photos, videos and recycling tips to share with others and are keen to hear from individuals and groups – including schools, families, housemates, work groups – how do you do it in your home/school/workplace?
We want to use your photos and stories mainly for our social media campaign.
Want to get involved and make a difference?
1. Send your photos/stories/tips/videos to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how you do your recycling - is there anything unusual about how you do it where you live, who organises it in your house, how do you use your food recycling bin, how do your kids get involved, and we’d love to hear about practical tips you can share to make it easier. If you have a fun way to recycle or a humorous tale to tell please also get in touch -we welcome creative ideas.
You can see some food recycling stories here for ideas https://www.recyclenow.com/recycling-knowledge/food-recycling
2. Email us at email@example.com to nominate recycling star(s) – people you know who we could contact for a brief interview and to take some photos. Please check that your nominee is happy to be contacted for this campaign - if so, please provide the name, contact number and email address for your nominee and explain briefly why you are nominating them. We are pleased to be working in partnership with students at Bath Studio School for this campaign, so we may be passing on the contact details you provide so that the students can contact you/your nominee to arrange a short interview and to take photographs/videos.
