Well, it’s been on the cards for a while but we finally have some progress here in Redbridge. Cardboard recycling banks are being placed across the Borough for a trial period of one month. If this proves to be successful then they will be here to stay, says the Redbridge-i website.
The sites are:
· Sainsburys, Chase Lane, Newbury Park
· Tesco, High Road, Goodmayes
· Fullwell Cross Car Park, Fullwell Cross, Barkingside
· Tesco, Woodford Avenue, (Near Charlie Browns Roundabout)
Unfortunately it doesn’t say “when”, so I had to telephone and ask. They should be installed by the end of this week, 25th July. Also it’s not exactly a good time to trial something like this when everybody is jetting off on their summer holidays. Just after Christmas would be a good time, but hey let’s not complain, let’s use the facility and make sure it is successful.
Councillor Linda Eyre said: “Have fought hard for this. We are buying two vans this year to recycle cardboard and two next. If it succeeds, we will have door-to-door recycling in 2009/10.”
