New waste calendars for a third of York households

The Council is writing to around a third of all households in York to let them know that their recycling collection day will change from the 1st of April 2017.

Households affected by the changes can expect to receive a new rubbish and recycling calendar in the post. The Council is also providing free boxes, lids and nets to households affected by the change. The changes will enable the roll out of recycling collections to rural areas of the city that don’t currently have them, as well as help to make the waste service more efficient.

As a result of the review collection times will vary, so the Council is reminding all households that they must present their household waste and recycling on the kerbside by 7am on the morning of their collection.

Rubbish (grey bin/black bags) and garden waste (green bin) collections are not affected by the changes.

More information is available online at http://www.york.gov.uk/wastechanges. This includes a list of all households affected by the change.

Little Hob Moor path improvements

Money from the Dringhouses & Woodthorpe ward budget has paid for improvement work carried out on the footpath / cycle path that crosses Little Hob Moor towards Hob Moor Terrace.

One section of path was prone to being covered in mud as water ran off the hill towards the railway line. French drains have been installed and the affected section of path has been raised and resurfaced – pictured below.


The next area of path in need of attention is a section by the allotments, which is very badly potholed (pictured below).

Hob Moor graffiti blitz

Thanks to prompt action from City of York Council and Network Rail, graffiti at the Tadcaster Road entrance to the Hob Moor underpass has been dealt with.

We wish that Virgin Media were as quick – graffiti on their cabinets on Chaloners Road and Wains Road has been ignored despite having been reported last August!
