The current scheme, which was introduced in 2009, involves alternate weekly collection of refuse, with a weekly recycling service for glass, cans, paper, plastic bottles, textiles and food waste collections.
A council spokesman said: "It is planned that many of these will be used as part of the commercial separated waste collection and for an alternate weekly collection for households in the North and South Isles."
"In a bid to increase the amount of waste recycled, an alternate weekly collection has also been proposed, with collections of the black bin being made on the alternating week to the co-mingled recycling bin."
The council carried out a major public consultation to establish whether residents would prefer an alternate weekly collection service in a 240 litre bin or keep the weekly collection but with a smaller 140 litre bin.
Refuse and recycling with Focsa in West Wiltshire centres on the alternate weekly collection of residual domestic waste, and green waste that also incorporates cardboard.
The report said: "The adoption of alternate weekly collection systems has been accompanied in most cases by rapid and substantial increases in local recycling.
The MPs' report says, "We recognise that research conducted to date into the health impacts of alternate weekly collection systems has found no evidence of adverse health impacts.
"If schools opt to take part in the scheme they will be provided with bins that will be collected as part of the household collection routes every fortnight once the alternate weekly collection of grey bins and green bins is introduced.
Across the country about 40% of local authorities have adopted an alternate weekly collection system, with recyclable material collected one week and household refuse collected the second week.
