Environment DepartmentSurvey: Separate Food Waste Collections Service – Takes 5 mins!


West Berkshire Council needs your opinion about the upcoming separate food waste collections service

We have launched a survey ahead of the roll out of our separate weekly food waste collection service and would like to encourage everyone who lives in West Berkshire to take part in the survey. The survey is now open and will close at midnight on 3 May 2022 and takes around 5 minutes to complete.

As part of the new service, starting in autumn 2022, food waste will be collected weekly, but on the same day as your usual recycling and rubbish collection. We currently collect food waste every fortnight in your green bin, with your garden waste if you are subscribed to that service.  As with all our recycling and rubbish collections, the service will be operated by our waste contractor, Veolia UK, who will collect the food waste using eight new purpose-built vehicles.

We are asking for residents views to help us better understand your recycling habits, whether you think it’s important to recycle food waste, and if you’d use the new service when it starts during autumn 2022.  We’d also like to hear from people who don’t currently recycle their food waste to find out what, if anything, is stopping you from doing so.

You can find further information regarding the service and survey here.

Residents can request hard copies by contacting us at [email protected] or by calling 01635 519080. Please bear in mind that our phone lines are very busy at this time of year so please only call if absolutely necessary.
