It is a priority of the Council to encourage
all residents to recycle and reduce their waste. At present some
residents of flats in the Borough find it difficult to
recycle owing to a lack of facilities.
The Council has a number of units specifically
for housing wheeled bins for recyclables. Receptacles are provided
for newspaper and magazines, plastic bottles and cans mixed and
glass bottles and jars. The units are placed in a communal area
allowing for recycling crews to access and service.
If residents feel that their block of flats may
benefit from recycling facilities, they are encouraged to express
their interest in the service by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
or by calling the Helpline on 01992 785577.
Managing agents are also asked to put forward
suitable locations. Each block of flats put forward will be
assessed for available space and suitability.
In the meantime, residents of flats without a
recycling service are directed towards their
nearest NRC where they can recycle
paper, cans, glass, plastics, cardboard and textiles.
