Emptying of bring banks delayed
Due to staff shortages caused by Covid-19 positive results and self-isolation, there will be disruption to the normal emptying of bring banks within Richmondshire both today Friday (16 July) and Monday (19 July).
There will be a crew out tomorrow Saturday (17 July) to try and empty already overflowing sites. An extra crew will be sent out on Wednesday (21 July) to help rectify this situation.
The bring banks, which provide a location to recycle separated materials, become full very quickly. We urge residents not to use these sites over the next few days if they are already full, and to take their recycling home. Please do not dump your items next to the banks leaving a mess.
We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause you.
Many items including glass, cans, plastic bottles, paper and cardboard can be recycled in kerbside collection boxes. These will be collected as usual. Collection dates can be viewed on our collection calendar.
