Discovery creates easy-read guide for recycling scheme

Discovery has joined forces with Somerset Waste Partnership to create an easy-read guide to encourage more recycling of waste.

The waste partnership is rolling out `Recycle More’ which will enable more items to be collected for recycling at the kerbside and a move from fortnightly to three weekly black bin collections.

Each household will receive a weighted blue bag which will enable items such as plastic trays, pots and tubs; food and drink cartons including Tetrapaks, to be collected for recycling. Small batteries and all electrical items will also be collected for the first time.

People living in the Mendip district were the first to use the new service which has most recently been introduced in South Somerset. It will be introduced in the Taunton Deane area in the autumn and Sedgemoor and West Somerset early next year.
