Paisley Daily Express - - Cash Boost Will Help Keep Tummies Full -

New re­cy­cling bins are set to roll out across Ren­frew­shire next week as the bin col­lec­tion ser­vice changes for res­i­dents.

From Mon­day, green re­cy­cling bins will be de­liv­ered over a three-week pe­riod to res­i­dents.

The new green bin will be for plas­tics, cans and glass and the blue bin will now be for pa­per, card and card­board only.

The new ser­vice is part of a drive to im­prove re­cy­cling in Ren­frew­shire and re­duce the costs as­so­ci­ated with dis­pos­ing gen­eral waste.

I n f o rmat i o n p a c k s spe­cific to each house­hold in Ren­frew­shire are also set to drop through let­ter­boxes to en­sure res­i­dents are fully in­formed.

The packs will pro­vide clear guid­ance on what should go in what bin, a full cal­en­dar of when each bin should go out and de­tails on any change in col­lec­tion day.

Coun­cil­lor Cathy McEwan, Con­vener of Ren­frew­shire Coun­cil’s In­fra­struc­ture, Land and En­vi­ron­ment Pol­icy Board, said: “We’ve been work­ing hard to en­sure we pro­vide res­i­dents with all the in­for­ma­tion they need to adapt to the new ser­vice.

“The new green bins will be de­liv­ered across Ren­frew­shire over a three­week pe­riod so don’t worry if you don’t re­ceive yours straight away, but make sure you start us­ing the new bin as soon as it ar­rives.

“We’re here to sup­port res­i­dents with the new ser­vice so if you have any ques­tions then please get in touch.”

The first col­lec­tion of the new bins will take place from De­cem­ber 3.
