Calls over new three-bin system

Residents concerned about a town's new rubbish collection system have flooded a helpline with calls.

Warwick District Council hopes to increase recycling and reduce landfill rubbish with its three-bin system which comes into use this week.

People must use a red box to recycle items such as paper and glass, put garden and food waste in a green bin and non-recyclable items in a grey bin.

The council said a lot of information had been released about the scheme.

Councillor Michael Kinson, the portfolio holder for the environment, said: "We have put a lot of information out in advance of this scheme, and so I think really people maybe have not been reading the information that we have put out."

The changes also mean the council will collect recycling one week, and non-recyclable waste the following week.
