Colchester Borough Council is trialling a new ‘Click and Collect’ service for garden waste recycling sacks.
From Tuesday 13 April, residents on sack collections will be able to order replacement garden sacks online and collect them from the visitor centre at High Woods Country Park.
Initially this new service will be trialled for four weeks. If successful, the council will look to continue to offer the Click and Collect service, including a wider selection of recycling containers and more pick up locations.
Over the last year, the council’s Neighbourhood team has been delivering recycling containers to those that need them, due to many local businesses and organisations used as stockists having to close due to coronavirus guidelines.
Redeployed council staff have made this delivery service possible. However, a more sustainable system needs to be found, working in partnership with local community organisations and businesses across the borough.
It’s easy to keep up to date recycling news year-round by registering for the Greener Living e-newsletter, following the council on social media at @YourColchester on Twitter and EnjoyColchester on Facebook or visiting www.colchester.gov.uk/recycling.
