Waste and recycling collection dates

The request was successful.

Dear Isle of Anglesey Council,

Please provide the following data, under FOI:

1) Waste and recycling schedules for all properties, organised by address and postcode. Please include day of the week and collection frequency (weekly, fortnightly etc) for each service type. I request that all data is provided in CSV format, ideally with separate columns for the different parts of the address. A link to a web service does not meet my requirements, though the source data for a web service may. Please include the UPRN for each property if held. This is now permitted by the AddressBase licence. See https://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/about/n... for details.
For an example of a suitable spreadsheet, see here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1...
Variants are acceptable if they contain the requested data. Separate spreadsheets for each waste or recycling type are also fine.
2) For collections that are not weekly, details of how to work out which week a collection will be. For example, if a "Week 1/week 2" system is used, then please provide an example of a date in week 1 and a date in week 2. For example "2nd January 2017 was in Recycling Week 1"
3) Details of all alterations to regular schedules for bank holidays etc. Please provide this for all future dates in 2017 and 2018, if available. For example, see this spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1...
4) Details of any planned changes to these schedules.

Please also treat this as a request for re-use of the dataset under RPSI. Please can you grant permission for reuse, ideally under the Open Government Licence. My planned use is to transform the data into a standard format and aggregate it with the data from other authorities. I will then release it under an open licence to enable the development of useful services to encourage recycling, such as chatbots and voice tools to find upcoming recycling days.

Yours faithfully,

Matt Kane

Dear Sir/Madam,

 

I refer to your Freedom of Information request dated the 17^th July, 2017.

 

Please find attached the Authority’s response to your request:-

 

Question:-

 

Please provide the following data, under FOI:

 

1) Waste and recycling schedules for all properties, organised by address
and postcode. Please include day of the week and collection frequency
(weekly, fortnightly etc) for each service type. I request that all data
is provided in CSV format, ideally with separate columns for the different
parts of the address. A link to a web service does not meet my
requirements, though the source data for a web service may. Please include
the UPRN for each property if held. This is now permitted by the
AddressBase licence. See
[1]https://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/about/n...
for details.

For an example of a suitable spreadsheet, see here:
[2]https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1...

Variants are acceptable if they contain the requested data. Separate
spreadsheets for each waste or recycling type are also fine.

2) For collections that are not weekly, details of how to work out which
week a collection will be. For example, if a "Week 1/week 2" system is
used, then please provide an example of a date in week 1 and a date in
week 2. For example "2nd January 2017 was in Recycling Week 1"

3) Details of all alterations to regular schedules for bank holidays etc.
Please provide this for all future dates in 2017 and 2018, if available.
For example, see this spreadsheet:
[3]https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1...

4) Details of any planned changes to these schedules.

 

Please also treat this as a request for re-use of the dataset under RPSI.
Please can you grant permission for reuse, ideally under the Open
Government Licence. My planned use is to transform the data into a
standard format and aggregate it with the data from other authorities. I
will then release it under an open licence to enable the development of
useful services to encourage recycling, such as chatbots and voice tools
to find upcoming recycling days.

Hello Helen,
Thank you. Do I have permission to re-use the data under the Open Government Licence?
Thanks,

Matt

Helen Jeffery,

Good Afternoon,

In reply to your request to seek permission to re-use the data given in reply to the above FOI request dated 17/07/2017 I would confirm that we are happy to allow re-use of the waste collection dates but would add that permission would have to be given by Royal Mail in regard to the postcode data released.

Many Thanks
