Chance to recycle Xmas cardboard; Local News Extra STAFFORD.

THE debris of Christmas cardboard can be recycled in the New Year.

Residents at Stafford will be able to put cardboard into their brown bin from January 2.

The move will boost nearly 47,000 homes in the area already using the brown bin facility for garden waste.

Stafford Borough Council's environment boss, Coun Stan Highfield, said: "There is always a lot of cardboard packaging left over from Christmas so we wanted to make it easier for people to recycle it.

"By taking it from the kerbside in the brown bin, residents can avoid making journeys to recycling banks."

Details about bin collections over the Christmas period will be sent out to all households shortly and will include information on Christmas tree recycling.

The details will also be available on the council's website at www.staffordbc.gov.uk A new waste collection service beginning in February will increase the amount of products householders can recycle.

The expanded list will include a kerbside collection of cardboard as well as a new blue wheeled bin for all plastic packaging, cans, glass and newspapers.
