New Waste Re-cycling Scheme
The Waste Re-cycling Scheme operated by Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council is changing on 4th July 2016. Full details about the changes are on a new page on our web site called THE VILLAGE.
From 4th July 2016, the current service will be replaced by a new weekly recycling service. The new service is made up of 3 boxes and will replace the current bag-based system. This will make storage of recyclable materials easier for residents as the boxes will be emptied more often and will stack taking up less room.
What will the new service look like?
Red Box: Metal and Plastic Bottles
Green Box: Glass and Cardboard
Blue Box: Paper, Batteries, Small Appliances and Textiles
Garden and Non-recyclable Waste
