Alderholt residents have another chance to find out more about the new ‘recycle for Dorset’ collection service at a presentation at the Village Hall on Wednesday 13 February, at 6.30pm. All residents are welcome to attend to find out more, and ask any questions about the new recycling and rubbish collection service – which starts in North Dorset and part of East Dorset in June.
Leaflets about the new service have been posted to 40,000 households in North Dorset and parts of East Dorset including Alderholt, Corfe Mullen, Cranborne and Sixpenny Handley.
Households have until 28 February to contact the DWP if they feel the new containers will not meet their needs, or if they require assistance to physically move their bins.  The closing date to pay for an optional garden waste collection – starting in June –  is also 28 February.
