Improved recycling service is coming to Abbeymead

Conservative controlled Gloucester City Council has improved its recycling figures from 6% to over 40% since taking over control and they are keen to improve this even further.  To aid this they are working with their contractor, Amey, to introduce a new fleet of refuse collection vehicles from the start of 2017, which will include the facility to collect corrugated cardboard and textiles from the doorstep.  There will also be necessary further investment in the green bin collection vehicles, though this is funded from the charges made for those bins.   This will help improve overall recycling figures to move towards the target of 50% by 2020. Gordon was part of the task group that made this happen.
