NEW dual litter and recycling bins are set to be rolled out on the streets of north Suffolk after a trial proved a success.
The new bins have been installed in Lowestoft in the past fortnight and now Waveney District Council and operational partners Waveney Norse will unveil the recycling litter bins at other towns in the district.
Following a successful trial in Bungay, the dual purpose recycling/litter bins will soon hit the towns of Beccles, Halesworth and Southwold in forthcoming weeks.
Councillor Ken Sale, portfolio holder for environment said: 'General litter is placed in one compartment and dry recyclables in the other, allowing Waveney to recycle about a quarter of each bin's waste that would otherwise been landfilled. The Bungay trial bins have been very well received and used and we have already installed a number in Lowestoft.'

Waveney Norse are now in discussions with Southwold Town Council as to allocating the bins along the High Street and possibly on the seafront.
Mike Daniels, cleansing service manager for Waveney Norse said: 'Following a successful trial in Bungay, we have placed out 20 dual litter/recycling bins in Lowestoft in London Road North, London Road South and along the seafront. We are continuing with the programme and hope the new bins in Beccles, Halesworth and Southwold are as well used as those in Bungay and Lowestoft.

'We have tried to style the bins to suit the areas, for example Lowestoft's High Street and part of the seafront have silver bins to match the existing street furniture. Bungay, Beccles, and Southwold will have black to match existing bins.'
