Introduction of Kerbside Recycling Scheme in St. Saviour
I would like to announce that following a Parish Assembly held on the 19 August 2019 at the Parish Hall a proposal to introduce a Kerbside Recycling Service scheme in St Saviour was discussed. I can confirm that 89% of Parishioners in attendance voted in favour. It was vitally important that the Parish of St Saviour and its Parishioners begin recycling to help our local environment.
The scheme is to commence in October 2019. You will soon be able to recycle in one bag, mixed paper and cardboard, plastics bottles (including toiletry bottles, household bottles and plastic lids) together with household tins. For more information please refer to the leaflet provided with this recycling pack.
Kerbside recycling will be collected from your doorstep once every 2 weeks by the Recycling Team of St Saviour. Please ensure that cans bottles, tubs and trays are rinsed and placed in the one bag. Please do not put the clear recycling bags out until your collection is due. Non-recyclables are to be put in your weekly black bags and placed into your bin. If you would like to recycle in between collections please bring your recycling bags to the Recycling Centre at the Parish Depot in Rue de Pres trading estate.
For more information please refer to the enclosed leaflet, ring us on 01534 735864 or email us on email@example.com.
We hope you will find your recycling scheme convenient and easy to use!

KERBSIDE GLASS COLLECTION
I am writing to advise our Parishioners that from October 2019 your glass collection provided by the Parish of St. Saviour in your area is going to change. We will be working to change, introduce or reintroduce the glass collection week pick up service in your vicinity, however, not every parishioner will be affected. It is important you look up your collection date by road where you reside in, in you planner provided.
What is changing and why?
Our recycling glass collection service is by far the heaviest load we collect and require a significant level of manual handling (heavy lifting) carried out by our Refuse Operatives. It is also important to note that under Health and Safety at Work 1989 Law, the employer has a duty to ensure, so far as reasonably practical, the health, safety and welfare at work of its employees, so change was necessary. The Works Team will be visiting your home to inspect your current bin (when collecting your glass) where we will assess the quality of bin and weight. If the weight is deemed critical (over 19 kg), we will issue you with a replacement bin. If you already have a glass bin you will not be given a bin.
WE WILL BE COLLECTING YOUR GLASS ONCE A MONTH ONLY. YOUR RECYCLING GLASS COLLECTION SERVICE WILL EITHER BE COLLECTED ON THE FIRST OR THIRD WEEK OF EACH MONTH. THERE WILL NOT BE TWO COLLECTIONS IN THE MONTH.
PLEASE REFER TO YOUR GLASS PLANNER TO CONFIRM WHEN COLLECTION IS DUE IN YOUR VICINITY OR BUSINESS.
I apologise, in advance, for any inconvenience this may cause however your co-operation in complying with the changes will be greatly appreciated.
