New Environmental Contract: What Changes Were Made to the Waste Collection Service? How Has This Made Recycling Easier?

From 1st August 2009, the red and green recycling bags were phased out, and replaced by a single recycling sack, which will be used in conjunction with the existing green box for glass. None of the materials that can be recycled will be changed. This should make it easier for residents with sacks to recycle.

In 2011/12, green wheelie bins were introduced to collect recycling, this makes recycling easier, tidier, and no longer susceptible to animals ripping open bags. They have also made it safer for the collection crews to handle.
