Additional recycling bins to be installed in the city following success of trial

Salisbury City Council is pleased to announce that another 12 recycling bins will be installed in the City Centre following the success of a recycling bin trial.

The installation of the first 20 recycling bins took place in August 2022 which have already generated an incredible 4.252 tonnes of recycling waste. Following this success, another 12 units will be replacing the old cast iron bins around the City Centre within the next few weeks and a further delivery is expected in May for a wider City installation.

These new bins will add to the already sited 400+ regular bins around the city, parks, open spaces, neighbourhoods and parish. We appreciate your support with the full use of these bins and the responsible disposal of all litter which contributes towards keeping a clean, healthy and environmentally friendly supported City.

Please help the team by making sure that the correct items are placed into the recycling bins. Plastic films, carrier bags, hard plastics and bottle tops are examples of what not recycle.

Cllr Wells said, “Thank you to those who have done their bit by using the recycling bins in the City. We are delighted to see that they are being used so well and I look forward to seeing more recycling bins across the City to encourage further recycling and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.”
