Changes to Council Services The Royal Borough has carried out a full review of how its services will be affected during the London 2012 Games, in order to minimise the impact on local residents and businesses. While the majority of services will run as normal, there will be some temporary changes to some services, plus the possibility of some slight delays to the response times for call-out services. Here is a list of the services that will be different during the Games. If a service is not listed here, such as the Customer Service Centre and the Libraries, then it will be operating as usual. Domestic Waste Waste and Recycling collections from some streets in the borough will start earlier at 5am, rather than the normal 7am. Further information can be found on the Councilâ€™s website. Residents should still leave waste in their storage areas for collection. Only where there is no storage area may residents put waste on the street by 5am. To make this easier, from 28 July to 12 August those residents without
storage can put out their waste from 9.30pm the previous evening. Please note that collection times across the borough may vary during this period, and it is important that you do not put rubbish on the street outside of the times stated. Orange bag deliveries Some residents will receive their Orange bags earlier than usual and changes to their collection times as described. Commercial Waste Some businesses will have changes to their waste collection times and when they can put their waste out for collection. This includes those situated on the Olympic Route Network (ORN) including both Cromwell Road and Brompton Road. We are sending an advisory letter to all businesses along the ORN. We also recommend that businesses make sure they have plenty of waste sacks in readiness for the extra trade the Games will bring to the borough.
