Waste and recycling officers from East Riding of Yorkshire Council will be out and about in five local towns this month as part of activities to mark this year's national Recycle Week.
Recycle Week 2017 runs from Monday 25 September to Sunday 1 October, and is now in its 14th year.
The team from East Riding of Yorkshire Council will be visiting Bridlington, Pocklington, Beverley, Driffield and Goole to promote household recycling and advise residents how to reduce waste around their home.
The officers will be parking their recycling trailer at each location and will be on hand to speak to anyone about waste and recycling issues, answer their questions and take requests for bins and kitchen caddies.
They will be visiting:
• Monday 25 September – Bridlington, Spa Promenade, behind Bridlington Spa, 10am-3pm
• Tuesday 26 September – Pocklington Market, 10am-3pm
• Wednesday 27 September – Beverley, Wednesday Market, 10am-3pm
• Thursday 28 September – Driffield Market, 10am-3pm
• Friday 29 September – Goole, pedestrian shopping precinct, 10am-3pm
• Saturday 30 September – Beverley, Saturday Market, 10am-3pm
No appointment is needed, residents can just go along to the trailer during the day.
Councillor Symon Fraser, the council's portfolio holder for strategic asset management, housing and environment, said: "We know East Riding residents will join us in supporting Recycle Week because they do a fantastic job of recycling their rubbish.
"These visits are a great opportunity for residents to come along and talk to our officers directly about all aspects of recycling and reducing waste."
