RECYCLING STATION AT THE VILLAGE HALL
This NFDC site is for recycling bottles, cans, jars, paper, cardboard etc. in the bins that are provided and are marked with what is acceptable.
It is not a general rubbish site.
Recently a number of pieces of general rubbish, including folding chairs, a suitcase, pictures, wok, wiring, bags of cans and bottles, open box of foodstuff, and the like have been left there. Please do not do this or NFDC may close the site completely to the detriment of all those who do use it properly. (Before you say “It’s the Auction”, it was not – I’ve asked them)
