Cherwell District Council residents - Are you still using "blue boxes"? You can upgrade to a blue wheelie bin FREEof charge?


Residents still using blue recycling boxes can now upgrade to a wheelie bin free of charge.
All houses in the district were originally provided with blue boxes, but Cherwell District Council has decided to stop supplying them as they are a source of wind-blown rubbish and are less cost effective than the bins.
The first blue bin is FREE 
 
 The blue bins come in two sizes: the standard 240 litre and the smaller 140 litre for those who have limited storage space. 
  Residents can swap to a larger or smaller bin at any time and recycling sacks will still be offered as an alternative for properties that do not have space for the blue bin.
Additional blue and brown recycling bins can be purchased for £30 each. 

Each house can have up to five recycling bins, either brown or blue (all blue, all brown or a mixture of both).
Every bin comes with a lifetime guarantee, so they are replaced or repaired free of charge if stolen or damaged.

Bins can be ordered online at http://www.cherwell.gov.uk/binordering
In order to recycle in the right way and avoid fines, residents are invited to check Cherwell recycling guidelines at http://www.cherwell.gov.uk/index.cfm?articleid=1773
