Calls to make local recycling simpler

Thousands of people have signed petitions calling for North East Lincolnshire Council to move towards having a single recycling bin.

Last week a new system was brought in with domestic waste collected fortnightly and recycling on the other week.

But many don't think the current recycling bins are fit for purpose and 2 online petitions have so far secured over 6,000 signatures. 

Recycled waste currently has to be sorted between several bins, rather than being placed in a one-size-fits all container.

The Council says it's listening carefully to comments but one recycling bin would be more expensive and the last week has seen a huge rise in the amount being recycled.
