Make this a ‘Green’ Easter – Recycling your packaging is now easy!

This year, for all of us who live in Tewkesbury Borough, all our Easter egg packaging can be recycled in our ‘blue bins’, thanks to our easy-to-use recycling scheme.
The foil, plastic packaging and cardboard box can all be put loose in the bin, making it easier for us to send less to landfill and be ‘greener’.
Our borough council’s current recycling rate is 56 per cent and we have an ambition of reaching 60 per cent, so all extra packaging like this helps to achieve that goal.
Over the Easter bank holidays there will be a collection as normal on Good Friday, but all collections the following week (from Tuesday, 2 April) will be a day later than usual.
Your new 2013/14 refuse and recycling calendars are currently being delivered; they will be hanging on your refuse or recycling bin. Each calendar also includes a detailed list of all the items that are recyclable in the blue bins and food waste caddies.
Calendars are already available online at
