Extended partnership to boost recycling

A recycling logoScarborough Borough Council and RB Markets are pleased to announce that they will be in partnership for a while longer after recently agreeing a five year contract.


This means that the Boroughs residents can still benefit from the FREE collection of any unwanted or broken electrical items for a further five years.


The new joint arrangement is designed to boost the recycling of WEEE (Waste electronic and electrical equipment) in the Borough.


Harry Briggs, Scarborough Borough Council’s Recycling and Waste Enforcement Manager said: “We are delighted to have been able to ensure that the FREE service will continue in to the future as we believe this to be a fantastic service and one which is well used by our residents.


“This important partnership working means we can provide a FREE service, while helping us all to work together to recycle more and protect the environment for the future. This contract delivers significant savings to residents whilst maintaining our current service provision. We are hoping to build on this agreement and see more waste recycled than ever.”


Alan Clarke, of RB Markets, said: “We are extremely pleased to be able to offer the service for a further 5 years to the residents of Scarborough, and will strive to increase the recycling figures for the borough. With the councils’ commitment to the scheme and the residents’ active engagement, we hope to make Scarborough one of the best towns for recycling in the country.”
