Paper Recycling

We are committed to providing a reliable and efficient refuse and recycling service to all residents of the boroughs.  We are always looking at ways of improving the quality of the recycling collected from households and have been running trials to enhance efficiency. 

You may have seen the blue and red bin collection crews emptying the red paper box into the blue wheelie bin before it is emptied in the back of the collection vehicle. Due to the current covid-19 restrictions, for crew safety we are continuing to fully mix the paper recycling in with the rest of the blue bin recycling on many rounds.

We would like to thank residents for taking the time to separate their paper from the rest of their recycling and ask that residents continue to do this until advised otherwise. This will not affect all Kettering Borough residents.
