Shops stocked with recycling bags
6:00am Tuesday 10th December 2013 in News
FOOD waste recycling bags are available at shops across Colchester.
More than 70,000 homes can now recycle their food waste every week. Residents were given a roll of 26 bags for free, which would last for about six months, but must pay for more after that.
Now, 24 retailers have signed up to sell the Colchester Council-approved bags for £1.
Each stockist will advertise the bags outside their shop.
A full list of stockists is available at colchester.gov.uk/foodwastebags Businesses can still sign up to stock the liners at colchester.gov.uk/ foodwastelinerstockist.
The scheme is yet to be rolled out to residents in flats or to newly-built homes.
