Borough Council of Wellingborough

Residents thanked for supporting council's recycling scheme

Published Tuesday, 17 September 2019

Wellingborough’s residents are being thanked for the difference they make to our environment as part of Waste & Resources Action Programme’s (WRAP) recycling week.

WRAP is a charity that organises the annual campaign which is in its 17th year and will take place from 23 – 29 September. The theme of this year’s campaign is recycling, it’s in our hands.

To support the campaign, the Borough Council of Wellingborough in partnership with Wellingborough Norse, is celebrating the great work residents do to recycle and how together, we can continue to make a difference.

“It is our duty as responsible residents to recycle as much as possible. More than 7,500 tonnes of recycling are collected from more than 36,000 homes across the borough each year, which is making a huge impact on the environment.” Leader of the Council, Cllr Martin Griffiths, said. “We can all do our bit to help to have a positive effect on the environment by ensuring all recycling is washed and squashed, and only putting clean recyclable items in green bins.”

Please think about those empty deodorant cans, shampoo bottles and bathroom cleaner bottles which can be recycled. And make sure the following never go in the recycling bin: black plastic bags; food waste and nappies.

For a full list of what can and can’t go in the recycling bin have a look at your Recycling Calendar. Or visit website:www.wellingborough.gov.uk  If you have an item and are unsure of how to dispose of it, please contact Wellingborough Norse on 01933 234520 or email Wellingboroughnorse@ncsgrp.co.uk
