New Recyling (Blue Lid) Bin – Information from Durham Council

Start using your BLUE LID recycling bin straight AWAY.

Information Leaflet on NEW Alternate Collection Dates Starting in June. FRONT BACK

Good Morning, need info on new Recycle (Blue) lid bins, we had ours delivered in Ushaw Moor, info. that came with the bin informs us we start using the bin on 22nd June 2012, in the mean time continue to use the Green sack for paper/plastic etc.

I have now heard that a number of users have had their Green Sack taken away after collection today 30th April.

Am I to understand that we are now using the NEW Blue Lid for recycling with effect from NOW rather than 22nd June as told by leaflet ?

      Hi there. You should start to use your new bin from now on, putting it out on your current recycling day. Alternate weekly collections (where your rubbish is collected one week, and your recycling is collected the next) will start in June, and the date on the leaflet refers to the recycling collection day once alternate weekly collections start in your area. Hope this helps. Thanks.

    • You’re welcome.
