Recycle on the go in Powys

New recycle on the go litter bins are popping up across the county, allowing us to all keep up the momentum and recycle our waste while we are out and about.

The new bins are split in two with one half for general rubbish and the other half for cans and plastic bottles which can be recycled along with the items collected from peoples weekly kerbside collections.

Cllr Jackie Charlton, Cabinet Member for a Greener Powys said:

"Powys people have proven to be great recyclers."

"It is second nature for many of us to recycle as much of our waste as possible, which is why it is so important for us to be able to recycle while we are on the go and not just at home.

"These new dual-purpose bins are ideal at ensuring our beautiful Powys communities stay litter free as well as providing an opportunity for us to recycle our drinks containers while we are out and about."

The bins have been purchased with funding from the Caru Cymru initiative, an all-Wales movement led by Keep Wales Tidy and local authorities to inspire people to take action, care for the environment and eradicate litter.
