drinks cartons, have reportedly arrived at Westridge Road car park and other city locations.
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.

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”
