Cardboard and plastic collection coming to (parts of) Natland

The much-anticipated doorstep collection of cardboard and plastic for recycling is coming closer! At the October Parish Council meeting Andrew Vickers and Nick Pearson from SLDC came to tell us about plans for ‘Phase 1’ of the rollout, which will start early in the New Year with a ‘Kendal’ trial which will include some streets in Natland. (Sadly, they can’t confirm just yet which areas of Natland will be included in Phase 1 but we’ll let you know on this blog as soon as we get do.)

The houses that are included will get a big new bag for putting their plastic in and be asked to flatten cardboard and include it with the paper in their paper box. Collections will happen on the same day as the current green waste, bottles and glass collection – although probably at a different time of day as the new lorries will be taking different routes. They ask that we have everything out by 7am to be sure of collection until things settle down.
