Three More Bottle Banks At Sites In The Cotswolds

Recycling facilities in the Cotswolds have been boosted with the introduction of three new plastic bottle recycling banks.

The new containers, which are for the collection of all types of plastic bottles, have been sited at the Westwoods Centre in Northleach, Temple Guiting Village Hall and Cirencester College.

There are now 29 plastic bottle banks spread across the District and most residents live within just a few miles of their nearest facility.

Waste Manager Scott Williams said: "The kerbside collection of plastic bottles is not economically viable in the Cotswolds given the high volume, low weight and low value of the material and the large distances the collection vehicles would have to travel.

"However, by increasing the number of recycling banks we are trying to make it as easy as possible for residents in the District to recycle more of their waste."
