Wheelie bins for recycling set to be trialled & garden waste due to start

With Harrogate Borough Council



Later in the year (date to be confirmed) we'll be launching a trial scheme to replace black recycling boxes with wheelie bins.


For some time we've been looking at how we could improve our kerbside scheme as we know you are increasingly conscious of the environment and have been recycling more year on year.


But before we roll out wheelie bins across the Harrogate district, we'll be trialling the wheelie bins in certain areas (to be confirmed) with different types of properties, areas of high recycling rates, etc. and will use the data to influence an approach later in the year.


Wheelie bins will replace black recycling boxes and we will continue to use blue bags for paper and card, albeit these will be replaced with heavy-duty bags for those properties that don't have them.


We'll have further information in the coming weeks so please keep an eye on our Facebook page and future editions of Residents' News.
