I’m Reece Cycler and I work as a Recycling Zone Warden for Colchester Borough Council. We’re bringing in some pretty radical changes to our recycling and rubbish collection in June 2017 and I thought it would be useful to share some of my recycling knowledge with you.

I’m really passionate about getting everyone in Colchester recycling more, but also realise that many of you will find these changes quite daunting (especially the 3 bag a fortnight limit). So I plan to share some great recycling ideas, alongside hints and tips to help you meet these new limits. You never know I might even be able to help you save a few pennies (or £££) along the way, which can only be a good thing!

I hope that you find my blog useful and interesting. My aim is to post on here weekly, but in the meantime if you’d like to find out more about the forthcoming changes and read the frequently asked questions I’ve put together, visit our website at www.colchester.gov.uk/recycling

If you have any recycling questions or comments for me, I will always try and respond to these as soon as I can but due to the nature of my role and shift patterns there may be a slight delay in these appearing on the blog.

Happy reading!
