Recycling bins trial

Broxtowe residents can now recycle their used foil packaging at local recycling centres along with their food and drink cans thanks to an innovative new partnership between Broxtowe Borough Council and two recycling organisations.

In a six month trial the Co-op, on Victoria Street, Stapleford will be one of four sites that will have metal packaging recycling banks for cans and foil.

Cllr Stan Heptinstall said: “We are continually looking to increase the range of items we can recycle.”
