People visiting Swaffham town centre will now have no excuse not to do the right thing with their recyclables.

Breckland Council has invested in three new recycling bins installed in the town centre this week.

The bins will collect waste paper, cans and plastic bottles for recycling and are located in Swaffham Market Place, just by Pedlars Hall Cafe.

Further recycling bins are also due to be installed in London Street.

Kay Fisher, executive member for the environment at Breckland Council said: “We are encouraging people to change their attitude to litter wherever they are and providing the best bins where they are needed will help us to recycle more and use less landfill.”

Shirley Matthews, mayor of Swaffham, said was pleased for Swaffham Town Council to be a part of Breckland's initiative.
