KERBSIDE recycling of plastic bottles got under way in South Cambridgeshire this week.
Residents will now be able to make use of their extra green box to recycle all sorts of plastic bottles, including milk bottles and spray and detergent bottles.
It will be collected on the same day as their regular green bin and box.
Cllr Sue Ellington, portfolio holder for environmental services at South Cambridgeshire District Council, said, "This is a really exciting week for our residents as this new service begins.

"We've been planning this for some months and hope that residents will really make use of the new scheme, making sure our already excellent recycling record continues."
To make the most of the service, residents are being asked to rinse and squash bottles before they are put out for collection. Triggers, lids and tops should be put in the black bin with normal household waste.

"I would urge all residents to check the recycling timetable."
