Food Waste Collection Service – Resident’s Survey

West Berkshire Council needs your opinion about the upcoming separate food waste collections service

West Berkshire Council have launched a survey ahead of the roll out of separate weekly food waste collection service and would like to encourage everyone who lives in West Berkshire to take part.

The survey is now open and will close at midnight on 3 May 2022, it takes around 5 minutes to complete.

The survey can be accessed here: here

As part of the new service, starting in autumn 2022, food waste will be collected weekly, but on the same day as your usual recycling and rubbish collection. As with all our recycling and rubbish collections, the service will be operated by our waste contractor, Veolia UK, who will collect the food waste using eight new purpose-built vehicles.

West Berkshire Council are asking for residents views to help better understand your recycling habits, whether you think it’s important to recycle food waste, and if you’d use the new service when it starts during autumn 2022.

You can find further information regarding the service and survey here.

Residents can request hard copies by contacting us at or by calling 01635 519080. Please bear in mind that phone lines are very busy at this time of year so please only call if absolutely necessary.
