Purple-lidded bins to be delivered to households across South Kesteven including Stamford, Bourne and the Depeings

New purple-lidded bins will change the way households recycle paper and card.

South Kesteven District Council will be introducing an extra purple-lidded bin to households for a separate paper and card collection from February next year.

These bins will be delivered to households in the next few weeks, ready for the launch of the changes next year.

Purple-lidded bins may be introduced across the district.

The council is preparing the more than 68,000 households across the district about how recycling collections are about to change with information packs.

The information pack will contain a letter to residents, a leaflet about what goes in each bin and an annual bin collection calendar.

Currently households place paper and card in a silver recycling bin.

This often gets mixed with other materials and becomes contaminated with food, liquid or broken glass, making it harder to recycle.

With the purple-lidded bins, paper and card will be taken directly to a dedicated paper mill to recycle them into paper-based products.

Residents will need to continue putting paper and card into their silver bins until the district council informs them to start putting it into the purple-lidded bins.
