Provision of New Recycling Bins



Hungerford Town Council is pleased to announce that, in a joint venture between HTC and West Berkshire Council, five new recycling bins have been placed at the following locations in the town:

Canal Walk, Bulpit Lane Play Park, One Stop Shop in Fairview Road, W H Smiths in the High Street and outside the Town Hall.

These locations were chosen as they are prominent positions in the town, and we would encourage all residents to make use of them. The bins are for recycling metal cans and plastic drink bottles. These are in addition to the plastic recycling container recently installed by West Berkshire Council in the Station Road car park.

Mayor of Hungerford, Cllr Helen Simpson, said “The placing of these bins is a start in the council’s commitment to helping create best environmental practice and reducing the council’s and the town’s carbon footprint. Depending on the success of this initiative, we hope to implement further recycling facilities in the town.”

West Berkshire Council’s Executive Member for the Environment, Cllr Steve Ardagh-Walter said “We are pleased to work with Hungerford on this initiative. I commend Hungerford Town Council for their commitment to providing their residents with more opportunities to recycle”.

We would love to know your views and whether this is something you would like to see more of in the town. Please contact HTC at or 01488 686195.
