Removal of Recycling Banks

Cornwall Council is removing its recycling banks from 65 sites across Cornwall.

These recycling banks were put in place before we introduced our household recycling collections. Recycling is collected from every household in Cornwall every two weeks.

We are not removing banks provided by supermarkets in their car parks.  We are also not removing those at our 14 Household Waste and Recycling Centres.

If you've been using the recycling banks, please:

The Council’s Cabinet agreed to remove the banks at a meeting last year. If you'd like to know more, please read the minutes of the relevant agenda item.

We have given town and parish councils the option of taking over the management of recycling banks in their area.

We expect the removal of the recycling banks to be complete by the end of September 2020.
