At the August council meeting it was decided to trial the introduction of a new recycling service of items that are currently not included in council’s recycling contract. After a two year trial period its cost effectiveness will be assessed. Items covered by the service include:
- soft plastics
- clothing and linen
- small household appliances such as electrical tools, hairdryers, irons, toasters, laptops and game consoles
- coffee capsules, batteries, medicine containers, printer cartridges and sealed paint tins
Residents are able to book a collection from their home direct to the recycling depot. Residents can use their own bags to separate recyclable items from their general waste. Bags can also be provided by RecycleSmart. Make your booking via the RecyleSmart app.
Collection of larger items can be booked as an add-on to an existing pickup.
