Simply Weekly Recycling - find out more at our roadshows!
Simply Weekly Recycling starts Spring 2017 - Find out more at our roadshows this September and October
Epsom & Ewell Borough Council will collect recycling and refuse every week from Spring 2017.
'Simply Weekly Recycling' will help make recycling simpler, easier and more cost effective. To find out more residents can drop in at one of many Simply Weekly Recycling roadshows taking place across the Borough in September and October. Information is also available on the Council's website at www.epsom-ewell.gov.uk
With more mixed recycling and weekly collections for refuse as well, residents will need a bigger bin for recycling but won't need so much space for refuse. As part of Simply Weekly Recycling, when the new collections start the Council will also switch residents' green and black bins. For the Big Switch, the larger green bin will become the recycling bin and the black bin will become the refuse bin. If anyone is concerned they may not have the right bin set for the Big Switch, they can get in touch with the Council right away on 01372 732000.

Councillor Mike Teasdale, Vice Chairman of the Environment Committee said, "One of the Council's key priorities is keeping our borough clean and green. Simply Weekly Recycling makes it easier and simpler for you and also needs fewer vehicles and staff to collect your waste and recycling. Good for you and good for the environment too.
"Do keep a look out for information on the new Simply Weekly Recycling service and don't miss the roadshows taking place in September and October to find out more about why simply weekly recycling is so good for Epsom & Ewell."
The new collections will be phased in from Spring 2017 and residents will be kept informed when the new service starts for their home.
Garden waste and leaves will continue to be collected fortnightly by subscription.
