Waste and recycling officers will be out and about in Goole next week offering advice and information to mark national Recycle Week.
On Monday 12 September, the team from East Riding of Yorkshire Council will be taking their van and trailer to the town centre to promote household recycling and advise residents how to reduce waste around the home.
They will be on hand to speak to anyone with waste and recycling issues, answer their questions, and take requests for bins and kitchen caddies.
Recycle Week, now in its 13th year, is a celebration of everything about recycling and this year’s theme is The Unusual Suspects.
The aim is to encourage people to think about all the items that can often be forgotten about when recycling at home – and to place them in their blue and brown bins.
Councillor Symon Fraser, the council’s portfolio holder for asset management, housing and environment, said: “We are happy to support Recycle Week and always encourage residents in the East Riding to do their bit by recycling as much as they can, throughout the year.
“There are so many different household items that can be recycled these days, and we want to make people aware of which bin to put them in.
“Next week’s visits are a great opportunity for residents to come along and talk to our officers directly about all aspects of recycling and reducing waste.”
The waste and recycling officers will also be visiting Pocklington, Bridlington, Driffield and Beverley throughout the week.
