Our emergency team is asking people to dispose of their plastic bottles by using the new recycling banks.
Unfortunately some people are leaving their empty bottles next to the bowsers, rather than disposing of them properly. With the thousands of plastic bottles being used during the water shortage, it is important to recycle the bottles, rather than leave them lying around town.
The recycling banks are situated at each of the water distribution points: B&Q, Homebase, Morrison’s, Sainsbury’s (Priors Road) and North Place car park. Teams of staff are regularly empting the banks and will continue to do so as often as possible, although demand is clearly very high.
