Council set to close recycling banks, citing budget pressures

Shropshire Council plans to close and remove its recycling bring bank sites this spring, if the move is approved by the council’s cabinet this week.

The council will vote on Wednesday on whether to close the 120 sites across the county, in an effort to save £237,000 a year. It follows a six-week consultation into the proposals, which ended earlier this year.

Shropshire Council and its waste contractor Veolia currently provide bring banks at 120 sites across Shropshire. They are typically located in public, village hall and pub car parks. All of the sites have containers for glass, metal, cans and paper while some have banks for textiles, liquid cartons and small electrical equipment.
