Hinckley & Bosworth Recycling & Waste Guide 2018

Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council are abolishing the paper and cardboard caddy found inside the blue recycling bin from April 1st 2018. All recyclable waste is to be put in the blue-lidded bin.

You will no longer need to seperate your paper and card from the rest of your recycling – you can put all of your paper, card, plastics, glass and cans together in your recycling bin.
