There is now ‘clear signage’ for the recycling, glass and general waste bins which are now hidden by wood cladding instead of industrial bins.

Councillor Helen-Ann Smith, deputy leader of the council said: “The project came about after the site was identified as requiring a more appropriate way to store bins, which would improve the appearance of the area, deter recycling contamination and fly tipping. These new bin stores provide a focal point which looks smart and modern.”
