Congresbury Parish Council is working with North Somerset Council to encourage residents to; Wash it. Squash it. Sort it.
Why is this important? Sorting your recycling allows crews to complete the job more quickly. This in turn helps to reduce congestion on the roads as well as minimising any other disturbance or nuisance caused. As sorting makes it easier for materials to be placed into the correct sections of the vehicle it will also help keep the streets cleaner and reduce the amount of litter that can be left behind after a collection, improving the neighbourhood and street scene.
