New Stickers and Tags on your Rubbish Bins

News from the Dorset Waste Partnership (DWP) here:

To help promote our food recycling service, the Dorset Waste Partnership will be attaching stickers and tags to around 38,000 rubbish bins during the period April to August 2018 in the East Dorset area. This activity follows successful similar campaigns in other parts of the county.

The exercise is costing about £9,500 including staff time, but is expected to save up to £38,000 over the next year by encouraging residents to reduce and recycle more of their food waste.

The stickers and tags are placed regardless of the contents of the rubbish bin and will not affect your regular collection. The sticker is a reminder to use the correct bin when disposing of food waste. We are not be inspecting the contents of the bins themselves. The tag shows facts about food waste and the reasons why we should recycle it. While they are not recyclable, both the sticker and tag are designed to stay on the bin.
