Post-Christmas recycling plea

SIDMOUTH residents are being asked to try and remember to recycle and re-use in the wake of Christmas.

Wrapping paper, cardboard, bottles and even trees can all be recycled or taken to recycling centres, says Devon County Council (DCC).

Cabinet member with responsibility for waste, Councillor Roger Croad said: “An enormous amount of extra waste is produced at this time of year, packaging, wrapping, plastic, additional bottles and so on, so it’s important we dispose of it responsibility.

“Devon residents have proved to be great recyclers and I’m sure this year will be no exception. With the opening of a new recycling centre in Sidmouth recently, our waste facilities are improving every year, making it easier and more convenient to get rid of all that extra Christmas rubbish.”
