Bring bank sites
For the health and safety of our residents and staff during the Covid-19 pandemic, we have removed our main bring/mini recycling sites. Inappropriate use of these sites has lead to high levels of fly-tipping which is costly to remove at a time when resources are limited.
As part of our Recycle more... plan, we are reviewing the 45 mini recycling sites and the effectiveness of them alongside the kerbside recycling collection service. As part of the review, we will look at how we can make it easier to recycle possible items such as tetra paks, nappies small electrical items and film at these recycling sites.
We are welcoming your input to help us with this review. Whether you use the sites or not, please complete our survey to provide your comments, feedback and suggestions.
