Dry mixed recycling
The purple recycling bin (wheelie bin) and recycling bin in the kitchen are for use during Hall hire & when you attend public events only. Please see the poster below for a full list of items to be recycled. Please ensure bottles and cartons are rinsed and dry, or seal them with lids. Cardboard and napkins contaminated with food cannot be recycled and must be put in the black bin e.g. used paper plates, pizza boxes, napkins and tissues.
Community recycling at the village hall has been discontinued due to misuse of the scheme; rubbish and dog waste was put in the bins. Crisp packets can be dropped off at Tesco in Royston for recycling. A resident is collecting for a recycling a scheme.
