The blue sack will help households recycle their corrugated cardboard from January 2017

 

Recycling in Gloucester is going to get a lot easier this January, thanks to the introduction of a new blue sack which will enable residents to recycle their corrugated cardboard.

The special new blue recycling sack can be filled with corrugated cardboard and put on the kerbside for the binmen to collect.

The reusable blue sacks will be delivered to homes across Gloucester in the first two weeks of the year via residents green recycling boxes, so it’s important that they are put out for collection at this time.

The first collections will commence on January 16 and any changes to collection days have been sent to residents in the form of a calendar.

What residents can now recycle:

Corrugated cardboard
Packing boxes
Mixed plastics
Pizza boxes
Margarine tubs and yoghurt pots
Plastic fruit & veg trays
Textiles & shoes
Unwanted clothing not good enough for charity shops

All this along with the collections already carried out for cans, glass, plastic bottles, paper, cartons, batteries, aerosols and food waste.

The introduction of the new blue sack follows a public consultation, in which residents were asked what changes they’d like to see involving recycling and waste in Gloucester.

Now even more recycling can be achieved by households in the city, creating less waste in the bins, meaning less waste ending up at landfill.
