RESIDENTS in South Cambridgeshire are being reminded that kerbside recycling of plastic bottles does NOT begin until October.

This week South Cam-bridgeshire District Council is delivering additional green boxes to residents across the district, ahead of the launch of the scheme next month.

Cllr Susan Ellington, portfolio holder for environmental services at the district council, said, "This is an exciting time at the district council and we are looking forward to providing this additional service to residents.

"Until their first plastic bottle collection we urge residents to continue using their local plastic recycling banks.

Any type of plastic bottle will be collected for recycling, including milk bottles, spray bottles and detergent bottles.
