Residents will be aware that, at the re-opening of the Riverside recycling centre last year, after the first lockdown, service provision was reduced and did not include paper/cardboard recycling. This was due to social distancing and queuing necessity at the time.
I have been pressing for full recycling services to recommence and have now had this helpful update from the City Council's Waste Services Manager :
"Following the announcement last week we are reviewing the implications and what control measures are now required in line with industry and government guidance.
We are also speaking with colleagues in neighbouring authorities.
We are certainly hoping in the coming few weeks that we can re-instate all services to both recycling centres."
I have asked to be kept updated and will advise residents when I hear further about this.
