Residents encouraged to 'recycle right'

STRATFORD District Council is encouraging residents to recycle ‘right’ after the festive season.

Householders are reminded plastic packaging such as microwave trays, yoghurt pots and fruit punnets can go in blue lidded bins along with clean foil and sweet or biscuit tins.

Unwanted presents could be donated to charity, swapped with relatives and friends or sold or given away via internet sites.

Community services spokesman Coun Mike Brain said: “Christmas is a wonderful time of year but can create extra recycling.

“Please make a new year’s resolution to recycle as much as possible – it’s good for the environment, the future and also saves money.”
