Keep on recycling

[Tuesday 20 January 2009]

HAMBLETON residents are being urged to keep on recycling – despite rumours that massive amounts of recyclables are being stockpiled.

Everything we collect in Hambleton is going to re-processing plants so we urge people to keep on filling their blue boxes and recycling centres.

Bob Baker - Hambleton District Council

Everything collected in the district is being sold on to reprocessing plants around the country.

The district council collects paper, cans, glass and plastics through both its kerbside collection scheme and via recycling centres in town and village centres.

Everything collected is taken to Yorwaste’s holding stations near Richmond and York where it is sorted and sent to reprocessing plants. Plastics go via Borders Recycling to Rochdale; paper via UPM Kymenne to Shotton; aluminium to Novelis in Warrington and glass to Glass Recycling Ltd in Barnsley. Local scrap merchants are taking all scrap cans.

“Contrary to reports around the country we do not have a problem with stockpiles of recyclables in Hambleton,” said Cabinet Member for Waste Management, Councillor Bob Baker.

“Everything we collect in Hambleton is going to re-processing plants so we urge people to keep on filling their blue boxes and recycling centres. We do not want to see lots of recyclables ending up on landfill sites.”
