Blue Bags Arriving in Hambleton
9:37am 13th May 2013
Households across Hambleton will begin taking delivery of their new blue recycling bags over the next two weeks, (from May 13).
It will mean they can begin to recycle even more products from their homes, say the council.
The new larger weighted recycling bags will be left by district council officers at the next collection of kerbside recycling. The old blue bag will be removed for recycling by contractor, Yorwaste.
The District Council say the scheme will mean that all paper and some light card, including cereal boxes, food packaging and health and beauty packaging, can be taken at the kerbside for the first time. The council say that the card must be white or grey based, brown card cannot be taken as the mill where the materials are recycled are unable to recycle it.
The council expects that the increased range of materials collected will boost the recycling tonnage by up to a further 425 tonnes.
Displays of the new bags and what can go into them have been set up across the district in the Leisure Centres at; Northallerton, Thirsk, Bedale and Stokesley and also in the councils area offices in Northallerton, Stokesley and Easingwold.
The first collection using the new bags will start week commencing May 28 say the council.
Anyone not receiving a new bag by May 26 should contact Hambleton District Council on 0845 1211 555
