[01 OCT 98] RUGBY BOROUGH COUNCIL PRESS RELEASE
Kerbside Paper Collection Trial

Rugby Borough Council is launching a scheme to assist residents to recycle waste paper.

For a trial period of a year, 1.100 households in the Hillmorton area each will be provided with a box in which they can collect all their newspapers, magazines, catalogues, junk mail and white telephone directories for recycling.

The waste paper will be collected once a fortnight. The collection will be made on the same day that the normal weekly refuse collection takes place.

Currently about 480 tonnes of waste paper are collected annually from the 443 recycling centres situated throughout the Borough. The kerbside scheme is expected to substantially increase the amount of paper to be recycled.

Councillor Martin Eversfield, Chairman of the Environmental Services Committee said,

"Homes in the trial area will shortly receive a letter giving details of the scheme. The first collection is scheduled for Wednesbury 4 November. We hope that residents will take advantage of the scheme. The results of the trial will help us to assess kerbside recycling for the whole of the borough."
