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.
