NEW WASTE AND RECYCLING BOOKLET TO LAND ON ISLAND DOORMATS SOON

Published:

This year’s waste and recycling booklet is set to be landing on doormats soon, and residents are urged to keep an eye out for the guide which contains full details on waste collections in their area.

The Isle of Wight Council’s guide, which is produced annually, includes information on what types of items should go in what waste receptacle, how to book free and paid for additional services, details on the Island’s household waste recycling centres, and guidance for businesses and holiday let owners requiring commercial waste collections.

The Isle of Wight Council, in partnership with Amey, will be posting booklets to residents from Monday (19 April).  The booklets will arrive in an envelope marked with the Isle of Wight Council and Amey’s logos and will clearly state it contains important information about waste services.

Alternative versions of the booklets, including large print, text only, black and white and brail can be provided on request using the contact details above. The booklet is also available in different languages.

Natasha Dix, the council’s waste and environment manager, said:

“If you are having difficulty with your waste and recycling or want to know how you can recycle more, we will do our best to help you — just get in touch!”

“Thank you for all your work in helping our Island to be in the top 25 per cent of recyclers in England.”

Any households that do not receive a booklet by 30th April are advised to contact the council’s waste and recycling team by emailing: [email protected] or by calling (01983) 823777 to request a copy.

so, they create a mountain of paper waste, just to advise you on how to cut down on waste.

well lets hope the envelope and paper work is easily recyclable and not made using some of the nasty inks some printers use.

When did people stop having bonfires after 6pm, are you still by law allowed to have them or is it just frowned upon by the smoke police? Answers on a postcard please, thanks x

How much did this cost the council tax payer?

wouldn’t it have made more sense to be available online you only requesting a paper copy if you want one?
