Council Closes Old Town Recycling Site

Old Town 1Old Town residents can no longer recycle cans and glass bottles close to home and they’ll have to take them to Telegraph, the Strand or the back of the Town Hall.

But the Old Town Inn landlord says the Council could have kept their recycling bins in the pub car park if they had acted reasonably.

Paul Evans asked for Council staff to remove rubbish and smashed glass that people had dropped around the bins.

He also asked for a token site rental charge of free waste bags for his business.

When the Council said “no” he removed permission for bin siting.

Since then the Council have made two attempts to start collection points around Old Town but they have been removed following complaints about noise disturbance when people deposit glass in the bins.

We’ve offered the Council the chance to comment. We’ll let you know what they say if they respond.
