Waste and Recycling
It is my opinion, and I would like to hear if you disagree, that the kerbside waste and recycling in Wiltshire works reasonably well. Compared to other authorities, it seems to be very efficient and produces high levels of recycling.
Whilst the loss of the Everleigh facility is still very disappointing, the implementation of the booking system for the bulky waste and recycling centres has overall been successful. Whilst it does prevent the spur of the moment clear out, it has reduced the terrible queues that plague the facilities.
However, I do believe that much more could be done with the domestic bulky waste collection service and that the price for this services is quite high. I also believe that much more could be done with large items - reconditioning, reusing and recycling.
