I have mentioned previously that liners for the blue food waste bins were soon to be made available free of charge for local residents.
I was delighted to be able to announce this week that the free liners will be available from March and April and from then on be delivered to homes every six months.
I believe that by having the liners immediately available, residents can instantly use them for their food waste recycling, rather than them having to undergo the extra effort of wrapping items of waste food in newspaper.
This town has a very good record on recycling but we can do more. Residents have become well accustomed to recycling opportunities such as using their pink recycling sacks, and many are already keen food waste recyclers.
To keep up the momentum and encourage everyone in the borough to recycle their food waste, to help us at least reach our recycling target of 60 per cent by 2015. Residents who would like to use the food waste recycling service now but do not have a blue food waste bin are urged to contact 01702 215 006.
