Time for a spring clean . . .

Waste and recycling officers will be out and about in local towns next week, including Beverley, as part of a “spring clean” campaign. They will be offering advice about where people can take their rubbish instead of putting items into household bins which can’t be recycled.

Waste and recycling officers Emma Jasper, Karen Wagg and Chris Black will be in Beverley next Wednesday as part of the “Spring Clean” campaign

The officers will be parking their recycling trailer in Wednesday Market, Beverley, on Wednesday March 21st from 9am to 3pm and will be on hand to speak to anyone about waste and recycling issues, answer their questions and take requests for bins and kitchen caddies.

Residents are being urged to take any bulky unwanted items to any of the 10 household waste recycling sites in the East Riding, which are open seven days a week from 10am to 5pm.

Good quality items that could be reused and resold can be sent to the Reuse Shop at the Humberfield household waste recycling site near Hessle – just ask at your local recycling site. A percentage of profits go to local charities. Or items can be taken to charity shops.

Items that should be taken to household waste recycling sites include:

  • Broken garden furniture
  • Old paint pots and brushes
  • Broken garden tools and machinery, including lawnmowers
  • Old soil and compost
  • Rubble and bricks
  • Old plant pots and seed trays
  • Old children’s toys
  • Old duvets, pillows and cushions
  • Cardboard boxes and packaging
  • Unwanted clothes and shoes, bedding (blankets, duvets and pillow covers), and material can be placed in clothing banks sited across the area.
