Recycling language?

Our local recycling set up have just issued the following announcement... (bear in mind that recycling collection was previously done weekly)

"Aire Valley Recycling will now be collecting fortnightly as of the 5th of December. We are doing this to improve our service to current customers..."

Collection from weekly to fortnightly... is this some new usage of the word improve I have not yet heard of?

I suggest you get in touch with the company's management and ask it to justify its word selection. I'll be interested to read about their explanation.
