RESIDENTS in Topsham are invited to attend a meeting to discuss planned changes to household refuse and recycling collections.

The meeting will be held in Matthews Hall on Thursday, October 22, at 5pm.

Proposed changes include moving to a four-day, Tuesday to Friday collection week.

The calls also include moving collections from back alleys to the front of properties and introducing bi-weekly collections for those who are currently served on a weekly basis.
