Co-mingling of recyclables to go ahead in April
Waste paper, glass and cans will be collected in the same bin after changes to collections were given the go ahead by Craven councillors. Following the recommendation of the Policy Committee last month, the ‘co-mingling’ of recyclable waste has been rubber stamped by the full council and will go ahead in April.
Councillors at the meeting of the full council welcomed the move, which they said had been warmly received by most residents. Only a few people had raised concerns about the ability of the blue bins to take the additional waste, but councillors were told moving to fortnightly collections should be adequate, but could be revisited, if needed.
