Gloucestershire councils working together to save money and improve waste services
COUNCILS across Gloucestershire have joined forces to tackle the county's waste.
Cheltenham Borough Council, Cotswold District Council, Forest of Dean District Council and Gloucestershire County Council will work in partnership to manage waste services.
The Joint Waste Partnership will come into operation on April 1 this year.
At the moment the County Council is in charge of disposing of rubbish and each district is responsible for collection.
Sunday and Monday evenings £12.00 per head for an all inclusive meal with Indian and Thai cuisine (normal price £14.50).

But under the new arrangement there will be shared management.
The new partnership will be in charge of managing and monitoring waste collection and disposal, recycling collections, collection of food and garden waste and street cleaning.
The hope is that working together will enable the authorities to provide a more consistent county-wide service.
It is believed there will also be financial savings.
The partnership will see 'planning across borders' to make best use of the nearest and most appropriate depots.
There should not be any immediate visible changes to collections for residents, the councils have said.
