CHANGES to recycling are set to be introduced across North Herts in October.

A new waste and recycling service will be introduced and be extended to include kerbside recycling box collections.

And a network of plastic bottle recycling points is being set-up on 75 sites across North Herts.

The move to increase recycling will come as North Herts District Council drops once-a-week bin collections and introduces a once every two weeks bin collection.

Residents will shortly be supplied with recycling boxes.

* A blue box for paper - newspapers, magazines, junk mail, brochures and catalogues and shredded paper.

* A black box for glass - any colour glass bottles and jars, and from October aluminium and steel cans)

* A brown wheelie bin for garden waste and 25 per cent cardboard

The district council will shortly be sending out details to all residents about the new recycling set up.

Residents living in flats may have a wheelie bin for recycling rather than boxes.
