Recycling Facilities

 "BRING" SITES

The East Riding of Yorkshire Council has up to 145 "Bring" sites for re-cycling near community amenities. The re-cycling banks enable residents to re-cycle those items which can't be put in their blue bins, such as textiles. The "Bring" sites are sited on car parks close to supermarkets, leisure centres and public houses so that residents can shop, socialise and re-cycle at the same time.

The East Riding of Yorkshire Council also has 10 household waste re-cycling sites which provide facilities to re-cycle more than 25 different materials, such as mobile phones, small electrical items like hairdryers and white goods, for example, fridges.

The Council's re-cycling website includes information about the locations of the "Bring" sites and the household waste re-cycling sites, as well as which materials can be taken there. As an alternative, residents can call the Council's Re-cycling Hotline on 01482 395586

The East Riding of Yorkshire Council welcomes any suggestions for locations of new "Bring" sites to give increasing numbers of residents the opportunity to re-cycle near to their homes. For suggestions or for queries, please call 01482 395586.

BIO-DEGRADABLE DOG POOP BAGS

One of the most common complaints received in the Parish Council Office is the amount of dog waste on the streets and snickets of Cottingham. You would think that this would be one of the easiest problems to solve - how can any responsible dog owner not pick up after their pet? Anyone who has stepped in or pushed their pram or bike through a pile of dog waste knows how disgusting it is clean off. Why then are there still people who think it is acceptable to just walk away after their pets have performed .....

Well - the Parish Council does two things. Firstly, we use a stencil to mark pavements in areas where there is a specific problem to remind dog owners that they need to clean up after their pets. Secondly, we provide bio-degradable dog waste bags to our residents.

Since the beginning of November, 2010 the Parish Council has been handing out free dog waste bags to our residents. They are available from the Parish Council Office in Market Green and from the Office at The Pavilion on King George V Playing Fields. However, there are a limited number of bags available each month (in packs of 50) which means that residents will be limited to one pack per month. We hope that this will go some way towards helping to resolve this unacceptable problem.
