Waste Recycling

Which bin to use?

Have you ever wondered which bin to use when disposing of your old socks, unwanted soil and used teabags? If so, help is at hand with the Wheel of Recycling – a handy gizmo from the Vale. Look out for one with the delivery of the Parish magazine over the next couple weeks (when you’re finished with it, it goes in the green bin!).
