People living in parts of Hull will have their bins emptied fortnightly - instead of once a week - from today. Council bosses say they are changing the number of collections for 110,000 households.
It's hoped the move will lead to an increase in recycling and also save the authority around £1m a year. Residents will receive information packs in the next few days - which includes a calendar with new collection dates. Councillor Martin Mancey spoke to Calendar about the changes.
