Waste and Recycling
From Monday 11 September 2017, waste and recycling bins across the Borough will be emptied by Amey on behalf of Joint Waste Solutions. This new organisation is managing waste and recycling services for Woking and three other local authorities in Surrey. The aim of the initiative is to save money whilst maintaining high quality services.
Your bins will still be emptied on the same day but there will be some small changes.
- The collections will start slightly earlier, so please make sure your rubbish, recycling, garden and food waste bins are left out from 6am.
- You might find that your bins are emptied at a different time of day.
- Textiles and small electricals will now both be collected every week. Please put them out in separate bags.
Later in the year a separate vehicle will start collecting your food waste, so after that your food waste bin will be emptied at a different time to your waste or recycling.
Separate food waste collections to commence Monday 27 November 2017
Separate food waste collections are being introduced across the Borough from Monday 27 November 2017.
This means that your food waste caddy will be emptied at a different time to your rubbish or recycling. Separate collections will make the service more efficient because food waste vehicles don't need to be emptied as often as rubbish or recycling vehicles.
OUr aim is to make sure that this change goes as smoothly as possible, but please bear with us if there are any teething problems whilst the new way of working becomes established.
Joint Waste Solutions has been managing the Borough's bin collection contract with Amey since September, when we introduced a few small changes to the service. Here's a quick reminder of all the changes you need to know about.
- Bin collections start slightly earlier so your rubbish, recycling, garden and food waste bins need to be left out from 6am.
- Your bins might be emptied at a different time of day.
- Textiles and small electricals are now collected every week.
- Please put them out in separate bags next to your bins.
