More houses get recycling

Have your say

A MAJOR expansion of kerbside plastic bottle recycling is taking place in Barnsley.

From next Tuesday, a further 56,000 properties will receive the service in addition to the 14,000 already covered by a pilot scheme.

The service is being expanded to areas including Athersley, Birdwell, Elsecar, Jump, Kendray, Monk Bretton, Penistone, Royston, Silkstone, Tankersley, Wombwell and Worsbrough.

The service accepts plastic bottles for milk, pop, water, bleach, detergent, shampoo, fabric conditioner, and sun tan lotion. It will not accept juice cartons, yoghurt pots, plastic food packaging, or any other plastic items.
