Blue Box for Cans

Just a quick reminder that everyone in the village needs to start to put tin cans and other recyclable metal in their blue ‘glass’ box from Monday August 6th.

Cans in Box from August Sixth

Recycling is fun…apparently 😉

Derbyshire Dales District Council are changing the way that waste and recycling is handled, and as such big changes are afoot! The changes will be phased in, with the first being that tin cans and other recyclable metal will no longer be collected with cardboard. For the first time, tetrapak style drinks cartons will also be taken to be recyclyed, and these should also go in the blue box.

Derbyshire Dales said “When our new contractor Serco Ltd takes over on 6 August local people are being asked to recycle tins and cans in their blue recycling box – along with glass bottles and jars – rather than their blue recycling bag.

For the first time from August 6, residents will also be able to recycle in their blue box aerosols, aluminium trays and beverage cartons.

If you get confused, don’t worry. There will be a system of warnings put in place to let people know that they are getting things wrong.
