Even though we reported last month that the collection fleet had doubled in May, we are still experiencing a typical delay of two to three days from the day it should have been collected. 

It is fantastic that the residents of Swindon have taken to this wonderful new free service we are offering. So much so in April and May we collected 389 tonnes! Last week, one team collected eight tonnes in one evening.

There has also been some confusion over the dates of collection. Within the ward, there are several different days based on the collection round you are part of.
