Proposed Bin Collection Changes and Charges

Information from Councillor Martin Earl

The attached report forms part of the agenda for the virtual Stirling Council meeting taking place next Tuesday at 10am.

This report is seeking approval to make some radical changes to the current bin collection arrangements.

  • Reduce Grey/ landfill bin collections to Monthly ( Currently fortnightly)
  • Reduce Blue ( plastics/tins( collections to monthly ( currently fortnightly)
  • Stop Glass collections ( from 2022 when deposit return scheme is meant to be introduced)
  • Introduce a charge for the collection of garden waste  in the Brown Bin

This is the first I have heard that these proposals would be coming to this meeting. The attached report goes into more detail.

I have a number of serious concerns regarding the proposals and also the timing of this.

I would be grateful for any thoughts, comments, queries and questions you may have – email
