1. Bin amnesty sees residents offered second chance

    Recycling bins that have not been emptied due to having the wrong items in them will now be collected as part of a council initiative to encourage people to get it right.

    Tagged recycling bin in Boston

    Boston Borough Council said a small number of residents were still putting non-recyclable items in the blue bin, meaning less waste was able to be recycled due to it being contaminated.

    The authority said it was offering residents a fresh start, but added that if bins continue to be tagged after this week enforcement action could be taken.

    Quote Message: It is down to each individual to take personal responsibility when it comes to recycling. It is important to ensure that the right materials go in the right bin. If we get it right, it gives the best opportunity for the materials to be recycled.” from Councillor Deborah Evans Boston Borough Council
