East Devon District Council has announced that Feniton will host a road show on Saturday, 22 August from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Sports and Social club for residents to discuss the trial of the new recycling arrangements which will start in September.
Recycling officers will be on hand to explain the trial where, for the first time, residents will be able to recycle cardboard and mixed plastics which will be collected from the kerbside every week along with their food waste. The officers will also be able to help householders with any questions they may have on what else they can recycle.
Around 1,800 households will be taking part in the trials and will receive an additional 70 litre reusable sack which they can use for extra recyclables along with their usual green recycling box before their first collection.
As residents will be able to recycle more in their weekly collection, they will produce less waste to go in their grey wheeled bin which will then be collected every three weeks, instead of every two weeks.
I’ll join officers at the Sports and Social Club to chat through any concerns about how the new system will work.
Why not come along and talk ‘rubbish’?
