Removal of communal recycling banks

In line with other councils across the UK, Warwick District Council has taken the decision to remove its recycling banks from shopping precincts, supermarket car parks and other sites from February.

Starting this week notices and signage will be placed on the sites affected to inform users of the change.

The communal facilities, which include privately operated clothes and textile banks were installed long before the introduction of household kerbside collections, but in recent years have fallen foul of vandalism, fly-tipping and illegal disposal of commercial waste.

The Council plans to fully remove the recycling banks during the week commencing 22 February 2021, but will continue to monitor the sites and take enforcement action if there are incidents of fly-tipping. Further information including a list of FAQs can be found on the Warwick District Council website.
