until Monday 21 January 2008.
Councillor David Sanders, Cabinet
member for City Services at Peterborough City Council, said: “Three
million tonnes of extra waste is produced over the Christmas
holidays, which can end up at landfill sites. We want to encourage
people to recycle as much of this waste as possible and also give
them additional places they can dispose of it and other household
“Most of the extra waste created
during the festive period can be recycled and, while residents in
Peterborough are some of the greenest in the UK, it’s important we
continue to do our bit for the environment this Christmas.”
Card, paper, television guides,
newspapers, plastic bottles, aluminium and tin cans, as well as
juice and milk cartons, can be deposited in green bins for
recycling. Glass bottles and jars should be taken to the nearest
bottle bank of which there are more than 30 across the city.
