Triple-use bins encourage recycling on the go
There are now three ways to get rid of your waste when you are out and about in Boston - and a new chance to recycle on the go.
Boston Borough Council was offered a three-month trial of two triple-use litter bins which were very successful.
The bins are now a permanent fixture on West Street near PC World and in the Market Place next to the Ingram Memorial.
The trial was a great success and with 70 per cent of the waste that goes into our on-street litter bins being recyclable this allows the council to send it for re-use.
Stickers have been applied to help people use the correct part of the bin for their rubbish which can include recyclable material, waste which cannot be recycled and cigarette ends.
