Plans to 'simplify' Derby's recycling system
COUNCILLORS are set to "simplify" Derby's recycling system.
Blue, red and orange bags are set to be axed and replaced with a single blue bin, under the plans.
The changes are designed to make it easier for residents to dispose of their waste – as well as save the city council about £465,000.
If the proposals are approved by cabinet members next week, 240-litre bins will be distributed to households over the coming months.
The new service would take effect from June 3.
The proposals were mooted after residents called upon the council to make recycling simpler.
Currently, residents are asked to separate paper and cardboard into blue and orange bags respectively.
If the new blue bin is introduced, these materials along with plastics and cans, will all be able to go into it.
The cabinet meeting will take place at the Council House on March 20 at 6pm.
