Householders will receive their new two-year calendar for Alternate Weekly Collections (AWC) of general waste, recycling and garden waste in the post from Monday.

The new calendars run from the first week in November.

For the majority the collection days will be the same as last year.

Councillor Len Wyse, Executive Member for Environmental Services, said: “AWCs have bedded in very well since being introduced last November. We would like to thank everyone for engaging with this process and encourage them to keep their participation in recycling to help Scottish Borders Council to meet Zero Waste targets and avoid landfill tax.”
