Waste Management Consultation (residents who do not share their waste and recycling containers with other households)

Closed 15 Sep 2016

Opened 4 Aug 2016


Sheffield residents, landlords and managing agents are being asked to have their say on potential changes to their waste and recycling services. 

Despite saving more than £6million from the annual waste services budget over the past three years, Government cuts mean we need to save a further £3.4million by 2017. 

We want to increase the amount of waste recycled across the city and provide a more efficient service, without changing the collection frequency of black bins.

Residents are being asked for their views on a range of potential changes including changes to the blue box recycling service, collection times as well as the introduction of charges for replacing lost and damaged containers.

This consultation is for residents who do not share their waste and recycling containers with other households.  A separate consultation for residents and landlords/managing agents of flats can be found here


Why your views matter


Your feedback will help us to make sure we get the right balance between keeping council tax bills low, making it easier for more people to recycle more and tackle the funding cuts from Government.  Your feedback will help inform recommendations that will be put to the Council’s Cabinet in Autumn.
