Waste and recycling delivery days

The request was partially successful.

Dear Melton Borough 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. 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 schedules that are not weekly, details of how to work out which week a collection will fall. 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

The Council is asking for an extension of time under EIR Regulation 7, so

Hi,
Are collections weekly? If not, are all properties collected on the same week? If not, then I also need information about which week applies to each property.
Thanks,

Matt

CSC FOI, Melton Borough Council

Hi Matt

The information you are requesting is all on the website to show the days of collection for each area and which bin will be collected.

Hi Rebecca,
Thanks, but I need it in a machine-readable format. If there's a way of telling from the spreadsheet which calendar applies then that would be fine, but not manually going to the page for every street.
Regards,

Matt

CSC FOI, Melton Borough Council

Dear Matt

I have requested the information as per your email, to the waste department. Unfortunately we do not have it readily available in that format, we only have the information on the website. The following email indicates the FOI regulations on providing information.

Hello Rebecca,
Is there any way that even just the zone can be provided for each street, and I can extract the data from the calendars to find the actual dates?
Regards,

Matt
