It has been a year since the start of the recycling scheme in Canewdon.
Rochford District Council are increasing their policy of non collection of bins containing incorrect items.
Rochford District Council have asked that residents ensure that correct items are put in the correct bins. The most common mistakes are:
Black Plastic rubbish bags - NON RECYCLABLE
There have been incidents where residents are bagging up their recyclables have been bagging up their recyclables in black bags and placing them in the grey bin. These bins will not be collected.
Plastic Carrier Bags - RECYCLABLE
Clothing - Shoes & textiles - Should be taken to the clothing bank either at the village hall or Anchor Pub car park.
Clothing and textiles should not be placed in any bin.
Drink Cartons - NON RECYCLABLE
These contain a polythene inner lining so are non recyclable.
Garden & Kitchen Waste
Should not be put in plastic bags either in the bin or next to the bin.
ALL RUBBISH SHOULD BE LOOSE IN THE BINS
PLEASE REMEMBER TO PUT THE CORRECT BIN OUT ON THE CORRECT DAY, PLEASE SEE THE TIMETABLE UNDER RECYCLING.
