EXTRA materials can be recycled through kerbside collections in Chesterfield under a new arrangement starting in the winter.

From November, blue boxes and bags will be replaced by a blue wheelie bin, which will be able to take mixed plastics as well as glass, cans, aerosols, paper, magazines and cardboard.

Contractor Veolia, which has signed a seven-year contract to provide the borough’s waste management service, will be introducing a fleet of vehicles fuelled by biodiesel to make the collection rounds.

Chesterfield Council said the service would be easier for residents and increase the recycling rate to 45 per cent.
