Help us recycle all that food, glorious food!
Published on Thursday, 7th December 2017
Residents are being asked to use their green bins over the festive period for ALL food leftovers!
The Council provides all residents of the Borough with a free kitchen caddy, to collect and transfer food easily from the kitchen to the bin. To order a new caddy, visit the Council’s website or call 02476376170. Caddy liner bags can be bought from local supermarkets or online for a great deal at http://www.biobag-uk.com/warks/
Green bin collections take place on the same day as the brown lid bin recycling collection and the only two week period which the green bins won’t be collected is between Monday 8 and Friday 19 January. They will then resume as normal on Monday 22 January.
Cllr Barry Longden, portfolio holder for Health and Environment said
“This time of year food waste increases as the festive celebrations begin. Instead of this food being sent to incineration, we are asking residents to try and use their green bin so it can be recycled into compost. As always, we thank our residents for their great recycling efforts across the Borough and look forward to this continuing in the new year.”
