Thornbury Town Council Introduces New Recycling Facilities in to the Mundy Playing Fields

Thornbury Town Council is very happy to announce the installation of a new recycling bin in the Mundy Playing Fields.  The Town Council has been keen to encourage recycling in the town and felt it was important to provide these facilities in the very busy playing fields. 

The Chair of the Environment Committee, Councillor Matt Stringer, said “The new recycling bin will hopefully be very much welcomed by the many users of the Mundy Playing Fields.  We hope that we can all work together to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfill”. 

The Committee is also planning the further development of its environmental area in the Poulterbrook section of the Mundy Playing Fields.  This will include the planting of additional trees and wildflower areas, as well as a picnic bench made from recycled materials and a further recycling bin. 

Thornbury Town Council is keen to point out that it hopes that those who use the Mundy Playing Fields will use the new facilities responsibly.  It is important that items placed in “recycling” section of the bin do not get contaminated with “non-recyclable” items.

(Photograph below of the new recycling bin in the Mundy Playing Fields – pictured are (left to right) Councillor Clare Fardell, Councillor Matt Stringer, Councillor Bob Griffin and Councillor Guy Rawlinson.)
