New home for plastic and textile banks
Recycling banks for plastic bottles and textiles have returned to Chipping Campden.
The facilities are sited at the Recreation Ground off George Lane with two plastic banks one textiles bank.
The town has been without recycling banks for three weeks since Cotswold District Council had to remove facilities from the Back Ends lay-by for safety reasons.
Now, after investigating numerous alternative locations, the Council moved the plastic and textile banks to the Recreation Ground.
Council leader Cllr Lynden Stowe said: “I know that the people of Chipping Campden are amongst the keenest recyclers in the Cotswolds and we hope that this temporary blip in facilities will not have dampened their enthusiasm.
“We are very grateful to the Recreation Ground Committee for their help in finding us this site for the plastic and textile banks. We are, however, still looking for a site for the glass, paper and can banks.”
In the meantime, residents should recycle glass, paper and cans in their black kerbside recycling boxes and they can order extra boxes free of charge by calling the Council on 01285 623000.
The nearest glass, paper and can recycling banks to Chipping Campden are currently at Weston-sub-Edge, next to the bowls club, and at Budgens supermarket in Moreton-in-Marsh.
