Please help to reduce the amount of recycling materials blowing around the village.
In windy weather cover your box and weigh it down to stop the plastic bottles, paper and cartons blowing away before they are collected.  Alternatively nets to contain the contents of recycling boxes can be purchased from the Resource Centre in Pill for £2 each.

To reduce contamination and improve recycling efficiency, wash and squash!
Wash:     Scrape out any food remains/pour away excess liquid., rinse the container (use your washing-up water)
Squash:  Crush metal cans, squeeze plastic bottles flat to expel the air and reduce the volume, which makes collections more efficient.

Clothes recycling - help local charities raise cash: there are two clothing banks in Pill where bagged clothes and shoes can be left:

  • Fire Brigade Benevolent Society, by the Fire Station
  • Western Air Ambulance behind the resource centre
