New recycling scheme for St Ives

New recycling scheme for St Ives

Published by Sarah Yeoman at 4:38pm 22nd August 2018.

A new scheme could be rolled out to help tackle recycling in St Ives.

The issue is seen as a key priority for the town, with businesses, locals and visitors all asking for regular collections to be brought in.

Now officials are hoping to launch recycling collections because of the high demand for the service.

"Feedback from businesses, visitors and local people has shown that recycling is an important issue in the town and one that we are keen to support.

"Our recent pilot scheme showed that the bins provided to us were not suitable for the purpose we had hoped and unfortunately were filled with general rubbish as well as recycling so we were advised by Cornwall Council to remove them.

"We were of course disappointed but this has allowed us to highlight to Cornwall Council just how important an issue it is in St Ives.

"On the back of this we have been able to secure a meeting with senior council officers to meet us in the town to discuss how we can introduce and improve recycling and rubbish collections."

Carl Lamb, St Ives BID Manager

The meeting with the local authority is due to take place in September.
