Recycling bins for Brighton and Hove get green light
10:00am Sunday 10th February 2013 in News
Plans to install hundreds of city centre communal recycling bins to encourage people to go green have been approved.
Black boxes used by tens of thousands of people are set to be dumped in favour of giant containers by Brighton and Hove City Council.
Town hall bosses will use a Government grant of £840,000 to install 700 new containers to be shared by neighbours, claiming it will boost recycling rates and clear clutter from roads.
However more than 270 parking spaces are expected to be lost.
A mass consultation of the affected area, from Sackville Road, Hove to east Brighton, will now take place.
