Stevenage Borough Council to phase in recycling bags to replace boxes
- Credit: Archant
Stevenage Borough Council is to introduce new heavy duty recycling bags, which will replace the existing boxes.
The new bags will be phased in - initially replacing any recycling boxes that have been broken, lost or stolen, and used for any new homes.
The council currently provides three recycling boxes - blue for paper and cardboard, black for plastic and cans and red for glass - as well as a brown wheelie bin for garden waste, a small caddy for food waste and a black wheelie bin for general waste.
The bags have a weight at the bottom to prevent them from moving.
They also feature an attached lid with a Velcro seal to hold it down, keeping both the elements and animals out.
