Councillor Chris Leather, Lead Member for Waste & Recycling said;

"Easter eggs and other gifts typically generate more waste, so it is important that we keep on recycling throughout the bank holiday weekend. Please check the council's website and social media for more information. Thank you for recycling and supporting the service. I hope that everyone has a great Easter and enjoys the bank holiday weekend!"
