New tool to increase recycling in East Northants launches

New tool to increase recycling in East Northants launches

As part of East Northamptonshire Council's (ENC) long term strategy to combat contamination in recycling bins across the district, each household will shortly receive a sticker to place inside their recycling bin lid which reminds residents about what can and cannot be recycled.

The stickers will be included in the next issue of ENC's resident magazine, ENCircle, which is due to hit doormats throughout East Northamptonshire from 12 September.

Steven North, Leader of East Northamptonshire Council explains more:

"As a Council, we have a duty to collect waste, but are also committed to educate and work alongside residents when it comes to recycling and our Waste team work constantly to ensure this happens."

"But we are always looking to do more and after listening to residents, we have decided to introduce this simple tool which we hope will help.

"This new sticker will be supported by existing information on our website, regular social media posts and the great work our Waste and Customer Services teams do on daily basis with residents."

The hard wearing sticker should be affixed to the inside of the household's green-lidded recycling bin and is designed to be a visual reminder of what should be recycled in East Northants.

If you do not receive a copy of ENCircle or your sticker is missing, please email and a sticker can be sent out to you.
