More than four million black bags for domestic waste are set to be delivered to homes across Tendring.
Residents are being urged to keep an eye out for their supply as the deliveries will be made to more than 60,000 households throughout the District as part of a weekly kerbside collection service.
The operation will begin on January 19 – depending on the weather – and the target is to have the total run completed by the end of March 2015.
Tendring District Council’s (TDC) waste contractors Veolia Environmental Services will have a dedicated crew and a supervisor out on the job, trying to ensure that no one misses out.
A TDC Officer will also be out and about carrying out spot checks on properties during the three month period to ensure people are receiving their bags.
Nick Turner, TDC’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Coast Protection, said: “Homes which receive a weekly kerbside collection of waste will be receiving their 52 black bags – please let our contractors know if you believe you have missed out.
“I would also ask that everyone keeps the amount of waste going into the black bags at a minimum and helps to reduce the amount going to landfill.
“Please help us by recycling as much of your waste as you possibly can. Every little bit helps.”
Should anyone think they have not received their bags, they should contact Veolia on 01255 431620 within ten days of the date they should have been delivered.
All the delivery dates for each particular round – with named streets – will be available on the Council’s website, www.tendringdc.gov.uk soon and will be regularly updated so that residents can keep track of delivery progress.
