FENLANDER: Sixteen recycling banks removed as part of cost cutting drive
SIXTEEN recycling banks that have been used to collect all sorts of cans have been removed as part of Fenland District Council’s drive to cut unnecessary costs.
The decision follows a detailed review of usage at the 16 sites across the district which showed that less than a tonne of recyclable material was collected from the banks between January 2009 and April 2010.
The banks are no longer needed because residents are now able to dispose of aerosols and food and drink cans through FDC’s kerbside blue bin and clear sack service.
Anyone who has extra recycling to dispose of that will not fit in their blue bin can take it to the household waste recycling centres at Hundred Road, March, Boleness Road, Wisbech, and
New Road, Whittlesey.
