Litter's not rubbish, says Council

Emma Robinson04th January 2010

Three Rivers residents may have noticed some shiny new additions appearing on their high streets over the last few weeks.

The District Council has introduced fourteen brand new on-street recycling bins to the district, which include compartments for litter, paper and plastic bottles / cans. The bins also have an ash tray section for disposal of cigarette litter.

Portfolio Holder for Public Services and Health, Councillor Phil Brading, said:

"These new bins should make it easy and convenient for residents to recycle their litter on the go, around the district. Thanks to the efforts of our residents the District Council already has a recycling rate of around 50 per cent; which puts it in the top ten per cent of the country for recycling. We hope these bins will increase the amount of waste we can divert from landfill even further!"

New on-street recycling binsThe bins are located at: Rickmansworth High Street (1), South Oxhey precinct (5), Delta Gain, Carpenders Park (2), Station Approach, South Oxhey (1), School Mead, Abbots Langley (1), Abbots Langley High Street (1), Lower Road, Chorleywood (1), Prestwick Road, South Oxhey (1) and Heronsgate Road, Chorleywood (1).
