Council’s guide to recycling on its way
NOT sure which bin to put your yoghurt pot in? Unclear whether foil can be recycled? Don’t know where to take your hedge cuttings?
The answer to all these questions, and much more information besides, is at hand in Uttlesford District Council’s new recycling guide.
The “Recycle for Uttlesford” guide, presented in a simple pictorial format, is being distributed to homes across the district in September.
As well as detailing what should and should not be put in each wheelie bin, it also gives information about collection dates, Christmas collections and disposing of garden waste.
The guide should help residents further improve on Uttlesford’s already impressive recycling rate of 54 per cent.

Chairman of the council’s environment committee Susan Barker said: “This guide provides the essential information needed to help residents in Uttlesford with their recycling.
“The district already has an excellent recycling rate and has been in the top ten nationally for some years now, but we’re always striving to improve things even further.”
