You may have noticed a few new additions to the pavements in Baldock over the last few weeks. North Herts Council has installed additional shiny new dual litter and recycling bins in the town centre, and we have also replaced some of the older style litter bins that were tired and broken with a new style larger capacity receptacle.
The dual bins mean you can recycle drink cans, plastic bottles, glass, paper, and card, while out and about, and the other section is for general waste when on the go like food, dirty takeaway boxes, bagged dog poo and anything else that can’t be recycled.
A total of 10 bins – four dual bins and six larger capacity litter bins – have been installed within Baldock town, in the High Street, Whitehorse Street, Church Street, Bell Row and Station Road.
Cllr Amy Allen, Executive Member for Recycling & Waste, said: “We are delighted to introduce these new bins in Baldock. We know most of our residents are passionate about recycling to help the environment, so it’s great they can now easily recycle their waste while out and about, including plastic bottles and drink cans.
“The larger normal litter bins will give greater capacity for litter and be a more efficient use of our resources around the town centre. Please use the bins when out and about and if you can’t find one please take your rubbish home with you.”
