Get your Bins Out by 6am!
From Monday 6 August 2018, residents will need to put their bins out on their property boundary at the slightly earlier time of 6am. This change applies to all bin collections and comes as Mole Valley's waste service is taken on by a new contractor.When the new waste contractor 'Amey' begins its collection service, residents can expect to see different waste collection vehicles and staff emptying bins around Mole Valley. Although bins will need to be put out slightly earlier, there is no change to the day they are emptied. Residents might also find that bins are emptied at a different time of day than in the past, and should be left out until they are.
The change in waste collection contractor is part of an initiative involving Mole Valley District Council and three other local authorities: Elmbridge, Woking and Surrey Heath. The four councils have combined their waste services to form Joint Waste Solutions, which now has responsibility for bins being emptied in those areas of Surrey.
Councillor Patricia Wiltshire, Cabinet Member for the Environment, said: "We are pleased to be a part of this new joint contract for dealing with waste, and this will save the four councils a combined figure of £2.5million a year. We are confident that Amey will maintain the high level of collection service you have come to expect and, to ensure this is the case, we will be working with them closely through Joint Waste Solutions.
"We would ask for your patience in the early stages as the new crews become familiar with their rounds."
