New wheelie bin for recycling cans, glass and plastic

All householders in the Shropshire Council area can now request an additional wheelie bin for recycling cans, glass and plastic after today’s meeting of the full Shropshire Council approved an investment of almost £3m to fund the extra bin.

The bin – which is optional and free for householders- can be requested online at https://shropshire.gov.uk/requestmixedrecyclingbin

The first bins are set to be delivered from May this year, starting in the south Shropshire area, before being rolled out across the county.

The bin will replace the existing black recycling boxes, and help to increase the amount of waste recycled by providing households with a larger container.

It will also reduce the amount of waste lost to the recycling process after being blown out of the boxes on windy days,

It will make the storage of recycling more convenient for residents, and reduce the amount of bending and lifting for residents and waste and recycling crews. 

Some households may not want a bin due to housing layout or the lack of storage space for the bin. These residents would be able to continue to use their existing waste containers, as will those residents who simply prefer to use boxes.

People will also be able to use their new bin as well as their recycling b0xes.

Those who longer need their recycling boxes  will be encouraged to retain and reuse them for different purposes – or take them to a recycling centre to be recycled.

RAF Shawbury have provided this information:

Received a new drone for Christmas? Fantastic! They are a great piece of amazing technology, but we need to share the air safely and responsibly by following the Civil Aviation Authority Drone and Model Aircraft Code.

Did you know that Point 3 of the Drone and Model Aircraft Code says “Always look and listen out for other aircraft that may be flying below 400ft, such as air ambulances, police helicopters, and low-flying military aircraft.”

Helicopters from No. 1 Flying Training School, based at RAF Shawbury, routinely fly down to 100ft in Shropshire and surrounding areas, well below the 400ft maximum for drones.

Help us to all stay safe by being extra vigilant when flying in Shropshire and surrounding areas, and if you can, bring a friend or family member to keep a lookout too.

We hope you can help to notify your councillors and residents, using the information in this email and the attached poster – which you may also like to print and display, or distribute.
