The information contained in this leaflet constitutes formal notice of a change to your domestic
refuse collection services as required by Section 46 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
Sta rts Feb 2010
 With the delivery of your new food
 caddies we continue to improve your
 recycling and refuse services. Inside
 this leaflet we show you how to get
 the best out of your new services.

  This leaflet is funded by Gloucestershire County Council
  working in partnership with Gloucester City Council.
Your New Services
Gloucester City Council is making
improvements to the way your waste
is collected so that you can recycle
more. This will also ensure we meet
government guidelines to deal with
your waste in a cost-effective and
environmentally acceptable way.
From February 2010 we will be
introducing a new weekly food
waste collection and enhanced
recycling service. Your food waste
