Wiltshire Council is urging people to cancel any bookings for household recycling centre (HRCs) visits that they no longer need, at least a day in advance, as more than 500 appointments are being missed during some weeks.
Households that pay to receive garden waste collections will receive an email or letter this week inviting them to renew their subscription by 14 August. New customers can also sign up to receive this service.
A man from Lyneham has been fined £400 after CCTV captured him leaving bin liners full of waste next to the recycling bins in Sainsbury's car park, Royal Wootton Bassett. The waste was deposited directly underneath a sign warning people not to fly-tip waste next to recycling bins, and advising them of the consequences of fly-tipping.
