Copeland unable to take extra cardboard for recycling


Copeland Borough Council say that due to the current extreme pressures on their Waste and Recycling collection service, they are unable to collect extra cardboard from residents’ kerbsides at this time.

A spokesperson said:

"The service is extremely stretched at present due to staffing levels and changes introduced within our teams to allow for social distancing. Combined with the excess cardboard being generated at this time by more people ordering deliveries from home and/or having a clear-out, we must make this restriction. 

"Accepting excess cardboard means the cardboard compartment fills much quicker than the other materials and results in unplanned trips to the depot to unload. 

"To ensure we can provide a collection for all households on the round we can only collect the cardboard that’s left in your bags, and not large pieces or boxes that are left alongside it as we ordinarily would. It would not be fair to collect excess cardboard from residents on the start of a round, and then not have space to collect any cardboard by the end of it.

"Our advice is where possible to cut up your cardboard, rather than leaving boxes intact, so that more can fit in your bag. For the cardboard that still won’t fit, we ask that you store it until your next collection, or failing that, until normal service resumes, although we appreciate this might not be possible for all residents. 

"Please note that the Government advice is that you should not be making unnecessary trips, and unfortunately a trip to our recycling banks would be seen as unnecessary, and those operated by Cumbria County Council are closed.

"We apologise for this necessary restriction and we look forward to collecting all your cardboard when normal services resumes."
