Recycling Roadshows Tour The Cotswolds

A series of recycling roadshows will come to the Cotswolds this autumn, offering advice and information as well as free recycling containers to residents.

Eight ‘Recycling Container Giveaway Roadshows’ will be touring the region in late November and early December, taking trips to towns in the north and south of the District.

The roadshows are a joint initiative between Cotswold District Council and Gloucestershire County Council and will be staffed by officers from both authorities. A range of free recycling containers will also be handed out at each event, with recycling boxes, kitchen caddies and cardboard sacks all issued to residents free of charge.

The places being visited are as follows:

* Bourton-on-the-Water Farmer’s Market, Sunday November 22nd (9am-1pm)
* Tetbury Tesco, Monday November 23rd (10am-3pm)
* Cirencester Kingsmeadow Tesco, Thursday November 26th (10am-3pm)
* Cirencester Brewery Car Park, Friday November 27th (9.30am-12.30pm)
* Lechlade Market Place, Friday November 27th (1.30pm-4pm)Moreton-in-Marsh Market, Tuesday December 1st (9am-3pm) Chipping Campden, in The Square, Saturday December 5th, (10am-2pm) Stow-on-the-Wold Farmer’s Market, Thursday December 10th, (9am-1pm)

Cllr Mark Tufnell, Cotswold District Council’s Cabinet member for Environment and Communities, said:

"Christmas is a very wasteful time of year, so we are giving away black boxes, cardboard sacks and kitchen caddies to encourage people to recycle as much as they can.

"Cotswold District is a beautiful part of the country and, together with our residents, we want to keep it that way. That is why we will keep emphasising the message that our residents should continue to recycle as much as possible in order to reduce the cost both to the environment and council tax-payers."
