 Waste and recycling drop-off service helps shift Christmas excess


News | Community

Peterborough residents can dispose of their excess Christmas and New Year waste and separated recycling materials when city council refuse and recycling lorries visit four drop-off locations around the city on Saturday (6 January).

Collections on Saturday will be held at the Lawson Avenue car park, Stanground, Peterborough, from 8 am to 9.30 am; Park Lane car park in Eastfield, Peterborough, from 10 am to 11.30 am; Christ Church car park, Dogsthorpe, Peterborough, from 12 noon to 1.30 pm; and the Rainbow Centre, Werrington, Peterborough, from 2 pm to 3.30 pm.

"Three million tonnes of extra waste is produced over the Christmas holidays which can end up at landfill sites," said Peterborough City Council's waste and recycling officer, Holly Beckett. "This damages the environment because landfill generates a quarter of the UK's methane gas emissions, which contribute to global warming.

"Most of the extra waste created during the festive period including card, paper, television guides, newspapers, plastic bottles, food and drinks cans, and juice and milk cartons can be recycled. The eight additional sites, which will complement the normal service, will help people recycle as much of this additional waste as possible."

Residents can also take additional waste to the householders recycling centre in Dogsthorpe and are reminded that collections of the brown bin service for organic garden waste will resume on Tuesday 6 February.

Glass bottles and jars should be taken to the one of more than 30 bottle banks across the city. Details are available by calling Peterborough Direct on 01733 747474 or by visiting the city council's website, www.peterborough.gov.uk
