The new 123+ collection service is under way in Daventry District.
As of Monday, 4 June, homes across the district have a new collection day and are receiving the new 123+ collection service, which comprises:
- 1. weekly food waste collection
- 2. two weekly (fortnightly) mixed recycling collection in a new blue-lidded wheelie bin
- 3. three weekly general waste black bin collection
- + Plus an optional two-weekly garden waste brown bin service for an annual fee of £35 per a year.
Visit our waste and recycling pages to find out your new collection day and what to put in each bin
Brown garden waste bins will not be emptied from homes that are not registered to the new service – to sign up, visit www.daventrydc.gov.uk/gardenwaste or call 0345 218 5215.
All homes should have recently received a booklet in the post with details of their new collection day and a calendar for the year ahead. Residents that have not received this can check their new collection day and download their calendar on our website - just type your postcode into the search bar above.
Residents can also download the Council’s free app to check their new collections and set reminders. Visit our mobile app page or search for ‘Daventry District Council’ in the Apple or Google Play stores.
From 4 June households must no longer use their red and blue recycling boxes and instead must put all their mixed recycling into the new blue-lidded wheelie bin for a fortnightly collection.
New recycling bins have been delivered to each home in the district ahead of the service - if you have not received yours, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01327 871100.
The new 123+ waste and recycling collection service is being delivered by Daventry Norse, a new joint venture between Daventry District Council (DDC) and Norse Commercial Services Ltd.
Daventry District Council’s Environment Portfolio Holder Councillor Jo Gilford said: “We would encourage everyone to make sure they have checked their new calendars ahead of the service launch on Monday so they know their new collection day and what bins they need to put out.
“The collection changes being introduced next week are the largest we have experienced in our District for many years and all households will need to get used to different days and collection patterns.
“Our residents have a strong track record of embracing change in waste and recycling – they were among the first to have the alternate collections system now commonplace across the UK. We are confident that these latest collection changes will bring further improvements to the service and encourage even more of our residents to recycle. When TV programmes like BBC’s Blue Planet show us how waste affects our environment, we can play our part in reducing that impact by recycling more. ”
