Recycling Scheme has some problems

July 4, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Non-Collection of Contaminated Bins is something that everyone wishes to avoid. 

But this is becoming a serious matter because I have been advised that Rochford District Council had 111 tonnes of contamination in May compared to 650 tonnes of dry recycling and this is costing in the order of £8,000 per month.

Recycling Officers from Rochford District Council have been going out with the refuse crews and ensuring that the dry recycling bins are free from contamination.

In many cases they have then been able to respond directly and distribute a letter and information leaflet.
