We are introducing extra plastic recycling facilities across the city!
Our current limited kerb-side collection for plastic was brought in by the previous conservative administration. We have worked with our partners, Capita to amend the initial scope of the contract to get more plastic recycled.
These recycling facilities will enable residents to recycle plastic pots, tubs, trays and cartons that we’re currently unable to pick up in our normal recycling collections.
There will be an initial 10 recycling banks spread across different locations in the city. They will not take up any car parking spaces and will be incorporated within the present recycling bank areas. These recycling banks will be based at the following locations:
• Angel Crescent car park, Bitterne
• Woodmill car park, Bitterne Park
• Canon Street, Shirley
• Westridge Road car park, Portswood
• Green Park car park, Millbrook
• 5 acres/Rugby club car park, Redbridge Lane, Lordshill
• Oakbank car park, Woolston
You can still recycle all types of plastic bottles in your kerbside recycling bin. This includes drink bottles, shampoo bottles and cleaning product bottles – but it would help us if you could remove the lids first.
