WORKSOP and surrounding areas could be set to return to weekly bin collections as the government has made £250 million available for local councils.
The government has said that only councils that can guarantee weekly collections for five years and can show improvements in recycling and procurement are eligible for the fund.
Government Communities Secretary Eric Pickles has said that the cash will make a “significant difference” to residents and communities.
Bassetlaw District Council currently operates an alternate collection service - picking up recycling one week and general waste the next.
