Residents Given More Recycling Choices This Xmas
Cotswold District Council, working in partnership with the Salvation Army, has introduced a new type of recycling bank at a number of locations across the district where residents can recycle unwanted books, CDís, DVDís and videos.
There are now over 50 recycling bring bank locations across the district so most Cotswold residents should now only live within just a few miles of their nearest facility.
For full details of every recycling bank in the Cotswolds and what can be recycled, please visit www.recycleforgloucestershire.com or call the Councils Waste Hotline 01285 623123.
Cllr Mark Tufnell, the Councilís Portfolio Holder for the Environment and Communities said:
"Despite having the second-best recycling rate in the country, we do not want to rest on our laurels. We would urge residents to recycle as much as they can during the busy festive period, when more waste is produced.
"We hope that by providing this type of recycling bank, we can make it as easy as possible for residents in the District to recycle more of their waste."
Residents are being asked to recycle as much as they can by using the Councilís fortnightly kerbside box collection, which accepts mixed paper, tins, cans, glass bottles, jars and cardboard for recycling.
Please visit www.cotswold.gov.uk for full details of the Councilís waste and recycling service.
