DSC_0176Having successfully won funding of £14m in a joint effort with Veolia Environmental Services, our recycling collections will change to weekly on the 28th October. Almost all of us by now will have received our grey food recycling box which can be kept inside the house and its compostable liner can then be placed in the brown bin or its equivalent.

The increase in frequency should make it easier for most households to make the most of their recycling opportunities for all the items that the council currently process. I for one will be glad to know that Friday is recycle day, full stop, rather than having to peer up and down the road to see what everyone else has put out.

The full document released by the council is quite long so we have created a short link to our website where you can read the document in full and find out exactly how the changes will benefit you and our environment. It includes information on collection days, the items that can be recycled and how you can assist. There are also contact numbers for you to call if you have any questions regarding this improved service.
