Recycling Banks?

recycling

 

Town Councillor Bruce Smart would like some feedback from residents regarding something that is coming up at a Rayleigh Town Council meeting next Monday.

The District Council is asking the Town Council about the feasibility having new recycling banks at the following locations:

 

  • John Fisher Community Hall, Little Wheatley Chase
  • Pope John Paul II Hall, London Road
  • Rayleigh Leisure Centre , Priory Chase

 

As a ward councillor for Downhall, Bruce is particularly asking about the Priory Chase proposal (and is concerned if there’s any way this could delay the adoption of the road even further) but comments about any of these locations would be welcome.

The materials collected would be one or a combination of the following:

  • Glass, cans, plastic bottles and food and drink cartons
  • Newspapers and Magazines
  • Textiles and Electrical Items

    Apart from the electrical items what do these do that your own recycling bins do not ?

    Good point and with bins in Asda car park why are more needed 100 yards or 100 metres away. Also at the end of a cul de sac which has little traffic. Priory Chase is an unadopted road as was pointed out when I asked for the grids by Pegotty’s and Barnados to be cleared. Had to do them myself in the end. Think Council should not be putting their bins on/off roads they deny responsibility for.

    I barely use recycling banks. If it is something that will not go in one of my own bins, i.e. electrical item, I either take it to the facility in Rayleigh when I am going there or put it in the car when I’m going shopping and use the recycling facilities at Tesco. It’s highly unlikely that I would make a special trip with anything.

    Good to see that the Council is looking at wasting more tax payers money.

    Surprising perhaps but we wrote about this sort of issue with Defunct Toasters in 2009 !!
