Barrow Borough Council has started to deliver the new dark red recycling containers for dry clean recyclable materials, these will replace the recycling bags. Acceptable materials are clearly printed on the lid. The boxes which have been used for paper will now be for GLASS ONLY. The new scheme will be started from w/c 3rd April and then fortnightly afterwards on your normal collection day. If you wish to dispose of old recycling bags they can be put in the residual waste. We believe this is the easiest and cleanest way to contain and collect recyclable materials and hopefully this will reduce the litter created by seagulls.
