  1. Group hits out at 'appalling' recycling bank closures

    Local Democracy Reporting Service

    Andrew Morris

    A litter picking group has said a decision by a council to close 120 recycling sites is "appalling" and will lead to more fly-tipping.

    One of the recycling sites in Oswestry

    Shropshire Council's cabinet approved the move last week and said shutting the 'bring back' sites would save £270,000-a-year.

    But the Much Wenlock Voluntary Litter Picking Group has told the Local Democracy Reporting Service that they fear the cost of collecting fly-tipping will "far exceed" that saving.

    However, the council says most recycling's now collected from homes and many of the bring back sites contain contaminated waste which can't be recycled.
