recycling scheme expands across Burnham-On-Sea
of new bins and recycling boxes will be distributed across Burnham-On-Sea
over the next fortnight during the latest expansion of the district
council's recycling service.
phase covers 11,000 homes in parts of Burnham-On-Sea, Bridgwater
and several rural communities.
'Sort It Plus', the recycling service introduces weekly collections
of plastic bottles and cardboard, plus food waste alongside fortnightly
collections of general refuse.
households are being sent notification packs to let them know
if they are impacted by the latest changes.
Stuart Kingham, Sedgemoors Executive Portfolio Holder for
Environment, (pictured) told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "This is
the biggest expansion yet and will help make a real difference
to recycling in Sedgemoor"
the course of 2010 were bringing 'Sort It Plus' to the whole
of the district, which should lead to our recycling rate doubling
to over 50 per cent. This will give Sedgemoor one of the highest
recycling rates in the country and save money for council tax
payers by cutting the burden of landfill taxes."
