Warrington Borough Council crest

Warrington Borough Council is advising the public that the blue recycling bins at The Forge car park, Stockton Heath have been removed.

The council has made the decision to remove these mixed-item bins – which are for glass, food and drinks cans, plastic bottles, paper, cardboard and aerosols - due to them being misused.

Items that cannot be recycled are consistently being placed in the bins, along with a large number of items being left at the site that cannot be accepted.

This means that the council can unfortunately no longer provide the blue bin service at The Forge car park. However, cardboard bins and textiles bins will remain on site.

The council is reminding residents not to leave cardboard or textiles on the ground if the containers are full, and not to use the site to dispose of items that are not accepted.
