Oadby and Wigston Borough Council are changing over to wheeled bins for recycling and have been delivering the new bins since the 18th June.
They are being delivered at the rate of 1600 a day. The roll out has taken less time than expected and will be completed in 3 weeks instead of 4. From the 9th to the 13th July residents will receive an exchange bins for those households who have chosen to have a larger or smaller wheelie bin.
Some residents are asking when they can start using their new wheeled bins, the answer is straightaway!
Due to the hot weather some collections may be delayed during this transitional period from bags to wheeled bins.
