Waste services in Christchurch will continue to be provided by the Dorset Waste Partnership (DWP) from 1 April 2019 for a one year period.
BCP Council, the new unitary council serving Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, has established a one year agreement with the DWP, to ensure that Christchurch residents and businesses continue to receive the same service as they do currently.
DWP will not only continue household rubbish and recycling collections, but they will also continue to manage street cleaning, commercial waste services, garden waste and fly-tipping enforcement in Christchurch.
Kate Ryan, Director of Environment and Community, BCP Council, said: “This is a really positive outcome for the residents of Christchurch. When preparing for the creation of BCP Council, the agreement reached with the Dorset Waste Partnership means that Christchurch will continue to receive the same service as they do now, without disruption.
“All waste services in Christchurch will also continue to be managed by the Dorset Waste Partnership, with most bin collection dates, opening hours and services all remaining the same. This 12 month agreement allows BCP Council to adequately prepare and develop an effective waste management service for all residents moving forward.”
