Main contract details
The Council’s Waste Collection Contractor collects organic garden waste from 240 litre wheeled bins from the majority of Rutland households, i.e. excluding properties where waste collections are from larger communal bins and a very small number of properties where waste collections are bagged.

The Council’s Kerbside Green Waste will be directly delivered to the Delivery Points in refuse collection vehicles, with the Council’s Kerbside Green Waste being subject to compaction.

The Council’s HWRC Green Waste will be delivered to the Delivery Points in ‘roll on roll off’ containers, with the Council’s HWRC Green Waste sometimes being subct to compaction.
Both the Council’s Kerbside Green Waste and the Council’s HWRC Green Waste shall be collectively defined as the Council’s Green Waste.
