Changes to Bin Collections

Changes to Bin Collections

Northumberland County Council are making changes to bin collection days in the county.

From the 12 November 2018 bin collection days for homes in Seaton Sluice will change from a Monday to a Wednesday.

The County Council have carried out a detailed review, and have developed new ‘optimised’ refuse collection routes to ensure the growing demand for this key front line service is delivered in the most cost effective and efficient way.

The new system will also be kinder to the environment, improve service performance and reliability, and minimise health and safety risks due to a new fleet of cleaner, greener vehicles.

For all households, even if your collection day has not changed, the time that they come to empty your bins will change – if you don’t put your bin out by 7am on the day of collection, it might not be emptied and they won’t be able to return for it.

There are no changes to garden waste collection dates so you should continue to put out your garden waste bin for the remainder of this season. However the collection time may change, so please put your bin out by 7am on the collection day.

If your bin collection day is changing then the County Council will also send a new collection calendar and information about these changes in the post.
