The District Council’s new recycling scheme begins on 21st July. This is something that the Lib Dem councillors support – indeed our colleague Chris Lumley played a part in the setting up of the scheme.
In addition to what can currently be recycled at the kerbside (paper, glass and cans), people can now also recycle:
Kitchen materials (such as cooked and uncooked food)
Garden materials (such as grass cuttings).
There will be a three bins – with one bin for each of the following:
Compostables (green waste and kitchen waste – collected weekly)
Dry material for recycling (paper, glass, cans , plastics, cardboard- collected fortnightly)
Stuff you can’t recycle (collected fortnightly)
If you can’t manage three bins for some reason – e.g. you don’t have a front garden to store them in, you can ask the council if you can be an exception.
The introduction of the scheme will take place in three steps:
16 June – 18 July: Two new bins will be delivered.
Week commencing 14 July : On the normal collection day rubbish will be collected and the existing grey rubbish bin will be stickered to show its new use.
Week commencing 21 July :The new service starts with collections of compostables and non-recyclables
