Waste and recycling collection dates

Matt Kane made this Freedom of Information request to Coventry City Council as part of a batch sent to 29 authorities

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Coventry City Council,

Please provide the following data, under FOI:

1) Waste and recycling dates for all properties, organised by address and postcode. I request that all data is provided in CSV or Excel format, ideally with separate columns for the different parts of the address. A link to a web service does not meet my requirements: I need the source data. 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, though variants are acceptable if they contain the requested data. Separate spreadsheets for each waste or recycling type are also fine: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1...

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

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

3) Details of any planned changes to these schedules.

Yours faithfully,

Matt Kane
