Festive bin collection details released

Festive bin collection details released

Renfrewshire Council’s bin collection services will continue as normal over the festive period – apart from on Christmas and New Year’s days.

Residents who normally have their bins collected on Tuesdays – the day on which December 25 and January 1 falls – are being asked to put them out on the preceding Saturday (the 22nd and 29th) instead.

Renfrewshire_Council_ezg_1All other collection days for the grey/blue bins will continue as normal over the Christmas/New Year period.

If services are disrupted because of bad weather, residents should put out their bins on the usual day and they will be collected as soon as possible.

Information about disruption will be available on the council’s website at www.renfrewshire.gov.uk

Residents will receive a leaflet through their doors with details of how bin collections will be affected during the festive season.

Councillor Jim Harte, Convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Environment and Infrastructure Policy Board, is asking residents to help make it a green Christmas by remembering to recycle.

He said: “You may end up with more household waste than usual over the festive period, and we hope people will recycle as much of it as they can.

“People in Renfrewshire are now recycling more than ever, and we are grateful for your help with this, at all times of the year.

“Residents can use their blue bins for any paper, plastic, unbroken glass or cardboard – which means you can recycle wrapping paper, bottles, cardboard and plastic packaging and Christmas cards.

“Any items such as old electrical equipment and household appliances can be taken to one of the council’s six household waste recycling centres.

“These will be open as usual, other than on Christmas and New Year’s days, when they will be closed.”

Residents will also be able to recycle their Christmas trees between 6 and 13 January at the following places: Barshaw Park and Underwood Road recycling centre, both Paisley; Thomas Shanks Park, Johnstone; Barwood Park, Erskine, and Lochwinnoch Public Park.

Renfrewshire Council to host welfare reform summit

Renfrewshire_Council_ezg_1

Renfrewshire Council to host welfare reform summit

Renfrewshire Council is hosting a high level summit to coordinate efforts to help thousands of local people cope with the estimated £22million loss in benefits they are expected to suffer because of changes in the welfare system.

The summit, involving housing associations, charities and voluntary organisations, is being held at India of Inchinnan on Tuesday 11 December.

Renfrewshire_Council_ezg_1During the summit Renfrewshire Council will present its plans for preparing the community to cope with what has been described as “a tidal wave of benefit cuts.” Lyn Kilpatrick from the Chartered Institute of Housing and John Campbell of Rights Advice Scotland will give the views of housing and advice services professionals.

The event will also feature workshops where organisations will have the opportunity to highlight their preparations and consider what else needs to be done.

Councillor Mike Holmes, Renfrewshire Council’s Welfare Reform spokesperson, said: “Renfrewshire residents are facing a tidal wave of benefit cuts. The changes being made by the UK Government will see 2,900 local working-age households affected by new under-occupancy rules.

“Over 2,000 working-age disabled people will also lose out when Disability Living Allowance is replaced by Personal Independence Payments.

“The under-occupancy rules alone could see local council and housing association tenants lose more than £1.8million of housing benefit. Disabled people, tenants in social and private housing, and families on working tax credits are going to be hit hardest, with many of them facing not one but several of these changes at once.

“The council is already working hard to make sure Renfrewshire residents know about the changes and how they are likely to be affected by them. This seminar is a vital part of those preparations. We are keen to work with our partners wherever possible to support local residents. The Welfare Reform summit will be an important opportunity for us to get together and discuss a joined up approach.

“Concerted, proactive measures are needed to minimise the damage that these far reaching changes are likely to inflict on the welfare safety net.”
Under-occupancy rules, or ‘the bedroom tax’, will introduce new rates of housing benefit that take into account the size of each property. Where people are considered to have more rooms than they need their housing benefit will be reduced.

The UK Government is also handing over responsibility for lifeline support such as community care grants and crisis loans to local authorities while reduced the funding available. Families working less than 24 hours a week will also lose out on Working Tax Credits.

Information about the imminent changes is also available on Renfrewshire Council’s website and Facebook page. Staff training is also being carried out to ensure key groups of council employees can advise the public of changes that might affect them and where they can get support.

More information about the changes is available on 0300 300 0288 and online at www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/benefitchanges
