  • 1. Introduction 

    Following a Parish Assembly held on 19 August 2019 at the Parish Hall a proposal to introduce a Kerbside Recycling Service scheme in St Saviour was discussed with 89% of Parishioners in attendance voting in favour.  A fortnightly scheme was commenced on 01 October 2019.

    2. Waste Hierarchy

    2.1 Reduce waste, reuse, recycle more

    It’s important to recycle as much as we can and to put as little waste into our rubbish bins as possible. As well as saving money, recycling also reduces energy, water usage and helps preserve finite resources globally.

    Recycling is important, but better yet, is to work  to minimise the waste we produce in the first place. We can each make a difference through:

    • buying smart and buying less
    • reusing and donating products
    • repairing items
    • upcycling

    From getting broken items repaired to giving old clothes to charities, are some of the ways we can help reduce waste. We all have a part to play in what happens with our waste and the things we don’t use anymore.

    3. Method of collection (all in one bag)

    The present method for collecting Kerbside Recycling (all in one bag) allows residents to recycle in one bag, mixed paper and cardboard, plastics bottles (including toiletry bottles, household bottles and plastic lids) together with household tins.

    Our collection is easy to use, cost effective to operative , minimises waste and and aim to raise awareness on how important recycling is.

  • Kerbside recycling will be collected from your doorstep once every 2 weeks.

    Our Kerbside Recycling scheme allows residents to recycle in one bag, mixed paper and cardboard, plastics bottles (including toiletry bottles, household bottles and plastic lids) together with household tins.
