Recycling Changes

Article 5309 | Published - November 14th, 2018


Removal of Recycling Bags for Kerbside Collection

South Gloucestershire Council would like to stop providing white and green bags for recycling and ask residents to use green boxes for all their recycling materials.No changes are proposed to how materials need to be separated and presented for collection, i.e. plastics and cans mixed together and all other items grouped separately in the boxes.

Why we would like to make this change:

We have noticed some issues with the recycling bags:

  • Bags deteriorating or blowing away mean they normally need to be replaced and only have a 12-18 month lifespan.
  • From an environmental perspective, the bags are out of line with the need to reduce the use of plasticsThe bags are manufactured overseas and transported via container ship. They are made from non-recyclable plastic and deteriorate over a period of 12-18 months, releasing multiple fragments of plastic into the environment.
  • Residents have told us there is confusion over how to sort recycling for collection. Removing the use of bags would simplify our messages so that residents are confident in using the service. This would enable crews to empty containers as efficiently as possible and reduce contamination.
  • We can save around £100,000 a year by not using recycling bags

How can we make sure this change doesn’t cause a problem for anyone?

At this stage the following actions have been identified which could potentially mitigate any negative effects:

  • If they wish, residents may continue to use their existing recycling bags until they need replacing, at which point they will need to switch to using boxes.
  • Promotion of use of boxes including how to stack, store and use them.
  • Creating simpler, more accessible information about the collection service.
  • Wider publicity of the assisted collection service, including publicity at disabled and older people’s forums.

Additionally, an Initial Equality Impact Assessment (EqIAA) has been completed and will be updated to take account of equality issues emerging as a result of this consultation.

How to find out more and have your say:

We would like to hear your views on whether we should replace recycling bags with boxes, and if we did how it might affect you.

The consultation is open to the public between 2 November and 25 January 2019, and a decision will be made by March 2019. To take part:

Statement on the refurbishment or rebuilding of Patchway Community Centre

 

Patchway Town Council has taken the unanimous decision to engage a firm of structure engineers to carry out a survey of Patchway Community Centre to see whether it would be possible to build on top of the existing building to create additional space and facilities and whether it would be more cost effective to rebuild a larger structure on the site.

 

Councillors agreed at a meeting on 23 October that they were very pleased to be moving forward on this project.
