Extended recycling service for Newport residents

Newport Wastesavers will now collect envelopes and greeting cards in the blue boxes provided to residents.

This extension to the kerbside collection service means that residents can recycle more than ever.

With the ever increasing recycling services being made available to residents, there should not be a great deal of waste ending up in the general refuse bin going to landfill.

They said:

"We would like to thank residents for doing a fantastic job of recycling during the past few months, as we have recently hit a recycling rate over just over 40%. This is a major achievement and clearly shows that we are all taking the recycling message seriously.

"Wastesavers would also like to remind residents about the junk mail recycling scheme they have in place. Any mail that residents receive through the post which is not addressed directly to a resident within the household is classed as junk mail. This can include flyers; take away menus, free newspapers, sales leaflets. These items can also be put in the blue recycling box."
