Cardboard recycling facility open
A new cardboard recycling bank has opened for householders in Bourton-on-the-Water.

The facility is in the Rissington Road car park where there are also containers for paper, glass, cans, plastic bottles and textiles.

During 2007, Cotswold District Council increased the number of cardboard recycling banks across the district from two to eight.

A new kerbside collection of cardboard is due to be introduced in 2008.

Councillor Mark Tufnell said: "Hopefully the new cardboard recycling bank will help to ensure that all the cards and cardboard packaging received by people in the Bourton area over Christmas end up being recycled, rather than buried in landfill sites."

The other cardboard recycling banks in the Cotswold District are located at the Old Station Car Park, Cirencester, the Tesco car parks in Tetbury and Kingsmeadow, Cirencester, the Council car park near the Tesco store in Stow-on-the-Wold, the Watermark site near South Cerney and the Upper Up Playing Fields, South Cerney.
