Wheeled bins coming to a town near you

Posted: 09/07/2009 19:05:08

Herefordshire Councilís waste management team will be holding a special roadshow in Kington on Tuesday, August 4th, to promote the new waste recycling service which launches in November.

The team will be at the Co-op supermarket from 9.30am until 3.30pm and will be on hand to answer questions. Wheeled bins will also be on display.

The idea behind the new scheme is to make it far easier for people to recycle and the majority of households in the county will be getting a wheeled bin which can be used to store all of their recyclable materials.

For the first time, glass can also be collected using the wheeled bins and other materials which can be put in the bin include tins, cans, plastic bottles, paper and card. The wheeled bin will be collected once a fortnight.

Councillor John Jarvis, Herefordshire Councilís cabinet member for the environment and strategic housing, said: ďThis new scheme will really help residents to increase the amount they can recycle and I would urge them to come along and find out more and get any of their questions answered.

ďWe want people to have as much information as possible before the scheme starts and this roadshow is one of many we have already staged or have planned to spread the word around the county,Ē he added.

Green wheeled bins will be delivered to households in September and October so residents are urged to look out for them. They will also have an information pack with them explaining the new system and when your collection days will be.

The new scheme starts on November 2 and residents are asked to continue using their current sack recycling system until then.

Even if you donít have a recycling service at the moment, the councilís intention is for all households to be included under the new scheme so look out for further details.

Residents will also be keeping their weekly black sack refuse service but should be aware that their collection day and time may change. Any changes in collection days will be on the information pack delivered with the recycling bin.
