Douglas ratepayers provided with extra bin capacity

Mon, 13 Feb 2023

A total of 107 households have been provided with extra bin capacity by Douglas Borough Council in recent months.

The figure was revealed at last week’s public meeting of the local authority following a series of questions from Councillor Steven Crellin.

Fortnightly bin collections were introduced last September as part of a change in strategy which includes recycling collections during alternate weeks.

The local authority urged residents with genuine concerns to get in touch and received a total of 164 requests for an assessment.
