Residents in a suburb of Birmingham will be taking part in a trial for recycling over the coming months. In order to reach the recycling targets that have been set by the government, Dudley Council are going to be trialling an enhanced recycling service. The plastic bottle and cardboard recycling trial will only be done on certain street in Dudley but it could be rolled out across the borough and it could become a nationwide scheme.
Each of the households will be given new recycling bags, one of which will be use for cardboard and paper with the other being used for plastic, tins and drink cans. They will be collected on a fortnightly basis along with other household waste.
The Council is hoping that by introducing an enhanced recycling scheme that more people will become interested in recycling and start to make a difference. There are still householders that do not recycling because they think that it is too difficult, however, in actual fact, recycling is really easy and it can be accommodated into your daily routine very easily. By having separate bags for recycling, it can be sorted without much fuss and all you will need to remember is to put your bags out on the right day.
