The council has invested in new route scheduling software. It will allowed us to provide bin collection service to the 9000 new properties expected in East Riding over the next six years.
To stay as efficient and as cost-effective as possible, as well as minimise our carbon impact, we have put completely new collection rounds together.
This means that most residents will have the collection days of one or both bins changed. Even if your bin date has not changed, you may find the time of collection has, so it is important to ensure your bin is out by 7am on your day of collection.
The letter you will receive outlining the changes to your bin collection dates will include an updated bin collection calendar with dates until November 2022. The usual November/December calendar will not be included this year.
An easy way to find updated information about your bin collection dates is to download our free bin collection app.
East Riding of Yorkshire council is introducing a new app that:
Once you install the app, you will be asked to add your address. The app will then be automatically updated with the new bin collection dates for your property.
You can sign up for the text message service, which can send reminders for your different bins the night before they are due to be collected. Simply search for your property using the bin collection checker above to get your calendar code. Then text your 'calendar code' to '07507 307088'.
Please note: The text message service will be not be available between 16 July 2021 and 16 August 2021.
You will be automatically unsubscribed from your old calendar code when the service ends on 16th July. If you want to keep using the text reminder then please sign up again after 16 August 2021 using your new calendar code.
