New wheelie bin for recycling cans, glass and plastic

Where requested, residents of the parish should now be in possession of an additional wheelie bin for recycling cans, glass and plastic. Where residents have not yet requested but would like one, this can be requested online at https://shropshire.gov.uk/requestmixedrecyclingbin

The bin is free of charge, replaces the existing black recycling boxes and helps to increase the amount of waste recycled by providing households with a larger container. It will also reduce the amount of waste lost to the recycling process after being blown out of the boxes on windy days. It will make the storage of recycling more convenient for residents and reduce the amount of bending and lifting for residents and waste and recycling crews. 

Some households may not want a bin due to housing layout or the lack of storage space for the bin. These residents would be able to continue to use their existing waste containers, as will those residents who simply prefer to use boxes. People will also be able to use their new bin as well as their recycling boxes.

Those who longer need their recycling boxes  will be encouraged to retain and reuse them for different purposes – or take them to a recycling centre to be recycled.
