THE future of Sheffield’s waste collection will be discussed by councillors next Wednesday – with no firm indication of whether fortnightly collections will be introduced for black bins.

Labour members of the council’s cabinet are considering the findings of a working group set up to explore options for improving the bins service and recycling while trying to save £2.4m a year.

The report underlined some benefits of switching from weekly to fortnightly collections but reached no hard and fast conclusions.
