This is what will happen on the day yours changes:
- Your black bin will be emptied into the usual lorry.
- A crew following behind will remove the wheels and stack the old bins at the roadside in groups of ten. The stacks will be placed on their sides without blocking pavements, driveways or footpaths.
- Later the same day, another vehicle will remove the old bins - most parts of the bin will be recycled.
- Another crew will follow the round in the other direction, delivering new bins, so depending on where you are in the round you may get your new bin delivered before the old one is taken away.
