East Herts Council reassures locals about paper recycling – it’s just a change of can

East Herts Council insists there has been no change to its paper recycling policy after some feared on social media the scheme was being scrapped.

Cllr Graham McAndrew, council executive member for environmental sustainability, reassured residents that scrap paper would still be collected – but there had been difficulty finding the boxes of paper that fit in the blue recycling bin.

Some people reported on Facebook that they were told they wouldn’t get replacement inner boxes and others claimed they were told to put their paper in the black trash bins.

But Cllr McAndrew told the India“We are now distributing slightly larger replacement boxes, curbside paper recycling boxes that are easier to find, allow residents to recycle more paper and provide more space for waste recycling in the blue box.

“Residents have always been advised to put newspapers in the separate paper recycling box, this has not changed.”

Guidance on what can and cannot go in blue bins and curbside paper recycling boxes can be found at www.eastherts.gov.uk/bins-waste-and-recycling/blue-recycling-bins .

If a resident has lost their paper recycling box, they can order a new sidewalk box online via www.eastherts.gov.uk/bins-waste-and-recycling/request-replacement-bin.
