Newcastle-under-Lyme trials plastics service

Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council in Staffordshire has begun a trial recycling service for plastics at six established bring sites with the hope of extending it to 13 eventually.

The scheme is being operated by Abitibi-Consolidated Recycling Europe and complements the companys existing multi-material kerbside scheme for 50,000 local residents in the area.

It is believed that the banks should yield about three tonnes of plastics per week.

Councillor David Becket said: The introduction of these banks means that, through a combination of bring sites and our kerbside collection service, residents can recycle a bigger proportion of their household waste than ever before, including paper, glass, cans, textiles and now, plastic bottles.
