Weekly bin collection plan moves closer
AMBITIOUS plans to restore weekly bin collections in the Potteries are a step nearer after a council was granted a £14 million in Government funding.
Stoke-on-Trent City Council lodged a bid for the cash to build a plant which would use pioneering technology to automatically sort general waste from recyclable rubbish.
It could pave the way for households to once again dispose of all of their rubbish in a single bin, emptied every week, while also dramatically improving recycling rates.
The new plant, earmarked for an undisclosed location in the city, would also see less rubbish sent to landfill and more power generated from recycling.
