As reported, the council promised an initial 10 recycling banks across the city.

According to one post on October Books' Facebook page, it's already filling up fast.

Meanwhile the council has written to households about household waste and recycling collections, saying it will “need to use enforcement powers to tackle repeated cases of mismanagement”.

Following “fair warning in writing”, the council says fixed penalty notices of £60 may be issued “if you consistently fail, without reasonable excuse, to comply with any requirements”.

The council’s notice also says that: “Failure to place waste in the correct receptacle may result in your waste not being collected until it is deposited correctly”
