New arrangements for bin collections in Swaffham and nearby areas will begin next week.

Officials claim the changes in Breckland will make the service greener and better accommodate newly built homes.

It is estimated that around half of all residents will see the day their waste and recycling is collected change as from next Monday, March 21.

Bin collection arrangements will change for many Breckland residents next week.

Residents whose collection days are not being changed are also being urged to ensure bins are out by 6.30am on collection day, as the times of rounds may also be affected.

All residents have been sent a leaflet explaining the changes by the council’s contractor, Serco.

Sarah Suggitt, Breckland Council executive member for planning, leisure and contracts, said: “We collect over 325,000 bins each month in Breckland, which is a challenging logistical operation, especially as the district expands with new homes and businesses.

“This new collection timetable will help our Serco crews not only reduce travelling time between collections, and focus on collecting waste, but offer a more environmentally friendly service to our residents.”
