Recycling Challenge - 60%


Central Bedfordshire is recycling waste!
Residents are now recycling over 50% of household waste, but now CBC want you to recycle 60% by 2020.


Reusable items are collected by Preen free of charge and go to support vulnerable and disadvantaged people across Central Bedfordshire. Items must be clean, safe and fit for reuse. Especially needed is furniture; white goods such as fridges, freezers, electric cookers; and small electrical appliances, for example televisions (including analogue TVs), DVD, video and CD players, and cooling fans. Collections are made at Bedford Square on the last Friday of the month, or Telephone PREEN on  0844 99 343 99 to arrange a collection or for advice on donating.
