Recycling is all-together easier in Northampton Borough

Veolia is quickly getting to grips with the waste, recycling and maintenance needs of Northampton, since taking over the borough’s environmental services contract on 4 June.

Working in partnership with the Borough Council, Veolia is leading a series of initiatives to make recycling easier and keep the streets and parks clean.

From now on, residents do not need to separate the different types of recycling – they can mix cans, plastics, foil, glass, paper and card all-together in any recycling box. Veolia will then pick up and empty all the boxes from the roadside into their collection vehicles. Anyone without a box, is encouraged to present their recycling in clear or white plastic bags instead.

Waste and recycling collections will initially continue as currently received but a change in service, will be implemented in September. From 17 September, collection days will change for every property and Veolia will introduce ‘all-in-one’ recycling wheelie bins. 

Residents on bin collection rounds, will receive their new bin during August ready for use in September. And a new schedule of bin deliveries will be published on the Borough Council’s website.

Residents on sack collection rounds will still use recycling boxes, but won’t need to separate out the materials, and they’ll be collected weekly. They will continue to receive recycling boxes when replacements are needed. However due to the move to an ‘all-in-one’ service, any colour box may be issued as a replacement.

Recycling containers for flats will be re-labelled for commingled collection.

Cllr Mike Hallam, Cabinet member for environment, said: “We understand that there is a lot of anticipation as the new environmental services begins this month, which is why Veolia will be spending time getting to know the area and routes first.

“The change to a new ‘all-in-one’ recycling service, with residents in wheelie bin areas receiving an extra lidded bin, will be introduced later in the year, addressing issues residents voiced during the consultation period, about recyclables being blown out of boxes and littering the streets.”

Keith McGurk, Regional Director for Veolia said: “Veolia look forward to working with Northampton Borough Council in the years to come to help make Northampton a borough that its residents can be proud of. Veolia is committed to enabling residents to recycle more of their waste, more easily. We are working hard to ensure that the changes happening are communicated to residents.”
