A Melksham resident has been successfully prosecuted by Wiltshire Council for environmental and trading standards offences whilst operating a waste clearance service on Facebook selling sites across Wiltshire.
Wiltshire Council has confirmed that the booking system for its household recycling centres (HRCs) will end on 19 July and, from this date, people will be able to visit a site without booking in advance.
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.
