Stop littering: put a net on it!

April 2nd, 2014

recycling box with net on top of the lidIs your street a mess on bin day? Windy weather can blow the lids off recycling boxes and strew the contents everywhere. If your recycling is blown around the street, it won’t get collected as recycling, so it’s very important to try to secure your recycling box as much as possible.

To help with this problem, West Oxfordshire District Council are offering free nets to stretch over the top of your recycling box, either over the lid or instead of a lid. These will help the contents of the box to stay inside until it’s time to be collected.

Next time you’re in Witney town centre, you can pick up a recycling-box net free from the district council “shop” on Welch Way, or you can order nets by calling 01993 861000.

If you believe that your street is particularly bad after recycling collections, please contact the council and they may be able to offer some extra help.
