Waste and Recycling Update

Waste and Recycling Update

News: 07.12.22

This year we have been exploring how we can streamline and improve our waste and recycling arrangements, to provide those using our halls and recreation grounds with the ability to recycle mixed materials (paper and cardboard, drinks cans and plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays) on site, whilst continuing to provide the best value service for residents.

We recently tendered to replace several existing contractors with a single waste provider, who will handle general waste, mixed recyclables, cardboard and dog waste. The new arrangements are effective from 1 December 2022.

In due course, we will be introducing new bins at the recreation grounds in Swallowfield and Riseley, and in the Parish Hall, Riseley Tea Rooms and Riseley Tennis Club, allowing users to separate their general waste and mixed recycling.

Please note that the above arrangements are not for residential or commercial waste disposal. Fly-tipping is an offence and any offenders may face a fine or prosecution.
