'Colchester will be a greener place for food waste collections'
5:00pm Tuesday 17th September 2013 in News
COLCHESTER will be a greener place when food waste recycling is rolled out across the borough, according to waste boss Martin Hunt.
Food waste kits are due to start being delivered in the coming weeks and Mr Hunt, borough councillor responsible for waste, has encouraged residents to look out for their equipment.
Mr Hunt said: “With only a few weeks to go until we start delivery of the food waste recycling kits and begin the new collection service, I encourage Colchester residents to check when their delivery will take place.
"The new service will be a real boost, making recycling all food waste quick and easy.
“It will be a great way for residents to reduce their black bag rubbish and associated smells, and help Colchester be a greener place to live."
Deliveries to 62,000 homes will run between October 14 and November 22.
