Wiltshire residents to have plastic waste collected

Related Stories

People living in Wiltshire will soon be able to have plastic waste and cardboard collected from the kerbsides outside their homes.

More than 10,000 residents took part in a consultation this summer by Wiltshire Council about rubbish and recycling collection in the county.

As a result fortnightly collections will be introduced - alternating between household and recycling waste.

The council cabinet is meeting on Tuesday to finalise the plans.

It said it was also working on providing a food waste collection service which it hopes to introduce at a later date.
