More of the new recycling wheelie bins are heading for two areas of Preston.Advertisement
Deepdale and Frenchwood homes, some 2,000 of them, get the new wheeled recycling bins replacing boxes.
It is part of a rollout of the new bins which replace the boxes across the city.
Cabinet member for community and environment, councillor Robert Boswell, said: “Preston is leading the way and we are proud to be a city that recycles and cares about the environment.
“Soon over 47,000 homes across Preston will have easy to use wheeled bins for their recycling.
“Since the scheme was first introduced more than two years ago, we have seen an extra 1,000 tonnes of waste being recycled by the people of Preston and we are confident this will keep increasing.”
The two new bins are a red lidded one for paper and card, plus a yellow lidded one for plastic bottles and cans.
The new wheelie bins arrive from Tuesday 30 September.
Last week the city council’s cabinet approved the scrapping of food waste bins which are in use for 15,000 homes in the city.
They said the bins had become “obsolete” due to new ways of collecting waste.
