Purbeck homes receive new bins from Dorset Waste Partnership

Bournemouth Echo: Purbeck homes receive new bins from Dorset Waste Partnership Purbeck homes receive new bins from Dorset Waste Partnership

HOUSEHOLDS across Purbeck have started receiving their containers for the new ‘recycle for Dorset’ collection service.

Throughout December containers, including a seven litre kitchen caddy and a 23-litre lockable food waste bin, will be delivered to homes in Swanage, Wareham, Upton and Lycthett.

Residents who paid for the optional garden waste bin before the October 18 deadline should also receive this at the same time.

The new scheme is set to go live next March.

A Dorset Waste Partnership spokesman said: “Purbeck households that already have a 240-litre wheelie bin for rubbish will use this for recycling from March. Properties that cannot use wheelie bins will receive a supply of sacks for rubbish and two additional boxes for recycling.

“Households will also receive an information pack through their door, including a user guide, stickers for their recycling containers, a reusable battery bag and free compostable caddy liners.

“New collection calendars for the period from March onwards will be posted separately.”

If the large container on the floor is what Bournemouth will get, then where will the normal rubbish go? This one nearly fills the small bin we have. I could understand if it went in the large one but to put it in the small one will cause big problems. Most people now don't waste that amount of food per week anymore.

Reading this article, and others on a similar subject over recent years makes me realise that I am lucky living in Bournemouth (from a refuse collection POV). I recycle around (at a guess) 80% of my refuse and it's a very simple system with all recyclables going into the Big Bin.
I hope Bournemouth stick with their existing system, and don't get any funny ideas in considering moving to the complicated system my parents have to put up with in East Dorset.

Their food recycling container is absolutely rank after a few days and my folks dread opening it to put more waste in it near the end of the collection cycle, especially in summer.!

I for one, will not be recycling any more, we had a good system in the purbeck, but now we will have to suffer smaller bins, smelly food bins and the same poor 2 weekly collections. many people voiced their concerns, and were told "sorry but it works elsewhere" so everything that does not fit in the bin will go in black bags to the local tip. we used to recycle 70% of our waste now, now stuff them no more.

We currently have a rubbish (excuse the pun) system in Purbeck that is outdated compared to others, they don't even accept plastic bottles for goodness sake! At least now we can start to recycle pretty much everything. I accept that it's not as easy as Poole for example where there are 2 bins, but at least I won't have to make the weekly trip to drop off the plastics! It's called progress, it's not perfect but it's better, the only thing that will change is that it might take an extra minute or two to sort out your rubbish but is that really the end of the world?
