Hull is stepping up the City’s recycling and anti-litter drive with the installation of a thousand new litter bins with cigarette butt holders, and trial recycling bins.
Litterman and Hull's trial street recycling bins
The new recycling banks, pictured receiving their seal of approval by Litterman, can take plastic bottles, cans, paper and clear glass and are being trialled in four locations including outside the City Hall.
Council quality manager for waste management Ken Upshall said: “I hope that the installation of these new bins will encourage everyone to recycle their litter to help make Hull a cleaner, safer place for all.”
Hull City Council has said that anyone found throwing, dropping, or depositing litter will be issued with £75 fixed penalties – and if these are not paid within 14 days they will be liable to face court action and a fine of up to £2,500.
