RECYCLING for residents across the borough is set to become easier from 1 April 2018. Hinckley and Bosworth residents will no longer need to separate paper and card from other recyclable materials using the inner caddy. Instead, paper, card, plastics, glass and cans can all be put together in the main blue lidded recycling bin.
The changes are being made as the contract with the company which was previously recycling for the council comes to an end in March. It follows a full service review which looked at what would be most convenient for residents, encourage even more recycling and provide the best value for money for taxpayers.
So from April, recycling collections will be brought in-house and carried out by the council's own employees, meaning there will be more control over this service.
The black inner caddies will be removed by the council's crews during the last collection in March and a new recycling information sticker will be placed on blue lidded recycling bins at the same time telling residents about the change.
