Mayor Making for 2018/19 will take place on Monday 14th May at 6.30pm in the Watson Hall.
Members of the public and press are very welcome to come along to watch the ceremony.
All collection crews will be out and as long as it is safe to do so, all bins and caddies will be emptied. If any bins or caddies cannot be accessed safely (for example on the hills etc), Ubico intends on returning either Tuesday morning or at the latest by Friday. Residents are advised to put their bins and caddies out as normal, and leave them out if safe to do so if their collection does not happen on Monday.
From Monday, Ubico will be carrying out the catch up collections for refuse and recycling bins that were missed on Friday 2 March.
Food and garden waste
Unfortunately there are not enough collection vehicles to empty the brown garden waste bins from Friday therefore these will be emptied on the next scheduled day which is Friday 16 March. See note below about extra garden waste. There will not be any catch up food collections as there are no spare food waste vehicles to collect it. The next food waste collection will be Friday 9 March.
Garden waste collections on Monday 5 March and Tuesday 6 March will not take place as these vehicles are being used to collect the weather impacted refuse and recycling collections. 1 or 2 bags can be put alongside the garden waste bin on the next collection. This is the same for the garden waste collections from Friday 2 March only. Excess garden waste can also be taken to the household recycling centres at Wingmoor Farm near Bishops Cleeve or Hempsted in Gloucester.
Please see this link to the web article which also contains information on reporting missed bins etc: https://www.tewkesbury.gov.uk/news/updates-refuse-and-recycling-collections
It is expected that there will be missed bins / reports for the next fortnight or so and Ubico are aware of this so will be planning extra trips if needed. Customer services will also be able to post out blue bags should people miss Monday’s blue bin catch up but are happy to wait until the next collection.
A message from the Severn Ham Committee Chair
Work is about to commence on repairing the leaks on the Severn Ham. The work is short term and disruption to walkers and dog walkers alike will be kept to a minimum, however it is advisable that you keep away from the part of the Ham while this work is being carried out by Severn Trent.
Great news – the Curlews are back on the Ham and I would respectfully ask all our dog walkers to keep their dogs on leads. I know its a big ask as the Ham is a lovely place for dogs to run free, but the birds are very rare and a protected species. We consider it a privilege to have the Curlews nesting on the Ham and therefore I would very much appreciate your co-operation in this.
