Sorting your recycling

This is why it’s good to sort your recycling. Thanks to Gloucestershire Live for allowing us to share their video.

Our crews are out and about in the new bright green Romaquip recycling trucks.

These incredibly efficient vehicles enable us to take all the different materials away for recycling and separating your recyclable items means that they remain high quality.

This also ensures that the collection crews are able to minimise the amount of time they spend blocking roads.
