Coventry City Council has announced that the opening hours for bin drop-off sites across the city will change. It comes after Tom White Waste successfully collected household waste and recycling from the city.
From this weekend (April 9), seven out of nine sites will operate at reduced hours and from Monday April 18, the War Memorial Park drop-off site will close permanently – this is how the park can prepare for BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend. Hearsall Common will remain open seven days a week.
With the changes to the sites, garden bins (with brown lids) will again be collected. The city council said these could be emptied again due to access to more garbage trucks.
