We are holding Community Conversations to ensure that our resources are best used to re-open the region to visitors in 2021.
These conversations were started at a regional session. They are being continued at a local level by Ward Officers through one to one and small group meetings. We're also using feedback forms to gather additional information. To get involved, please contact your Ward Officer directly.
Key issues requiring action were identified at our regional session. We will post an update on progress by 21 May.
Waste and Recycling
Dumfries and Galloway Council is developing a new kerbside recycling service to be rolled out across the whole region in late 2020 or early in 2021. It is also proposing changes to the opening hours for Household Waste Recycling Centres. Over 5 weeks covering end of October through November last year we held a series of Community Conversation events, visiting every ward to explain the new service, to listen to ideas, comments and suggestions on the waste service and on the potential opening hours for the Household Waste Recycling Centres. Thank you to everyone who attended, and we appreciate your input.
The feedback document provides answers to the questions asked of us.
Public Conveniences and Customer Service Centres
We held Community Conversations on Public Conveniences and Customer Service Centres during July, your feedback was collated and was presented to Communities Committee on the 17 September 2019.

Streetscene and Clean DG
We held Community Conversations across all Wards in Dumfries and Galloway in Spring 2019 on Streetscene and Clean DG. We considered all of the information gathered at these events and produced feedback documents which are listed below. The feedback documents set out where we are making changes and improvements to our service as a result of your input - thank you.
