I am very grateful to the West End resident who made the following good suggestion recently :
"I’d like to suggest an improvement on how the Council informs residents about the dates when the various refuse bins are collected.
My suggestion is that they also provide a link on this page to a file that can be downloaded and then imported into an electronic calendar - the .ics format is commonly used for this purpose. This would be a progressive, useful, and not difficult addition to the service.
I did a quick search on other council sites, and the first one I found, Stirling Council, supported .ics as well as the card approach, so my suggestion is not fanciful."
I raised this with the council's waste services manager who raised it with the IT department to see if this was possible - and it is! Here's the helpful response from the waste services manager :
"IT has advised that this is possible and we shall submit an IT bid to have this completed."
