Changes to recycling services confirmed

From Saturday, 29 May, remaining communal recycling bins (known as bring sites), currently installed in locations across the borough will be removed.

The decision has been made as part of measures to reduce fly-tipping, which sometimes associated with bring sites, cut contamination of the borough’s recycling and create a more cost-effective service. 

It is also hoped that removing bring sites will also help improve the borough by cutting the amount of business waste dumped illegally at these locations.

All residents can continue to make use of kerbside collection service for their recycling. Anyone who requires an addition recycling bin should contact the council to apply.

The council’s bulky waste collection service can be used for items too big for a normal rubbish collection.  Items that cannot be recycled at home, such as electrical items should be taken to one of the borough’s local re-use and recycling centres.

Some large supermarkets and shopping centres also have provision for recycling similar items so residents can also check with their local larger stores should they wish to dispose of electronic goods.
