Paper Recycling at Settle Swimming Pool will NOT be re-opening this summer31 Jul 2020
With continuing concerns about the spread of coronavirus, we have concluded it would not be possible to restart the collection of wastepaper and cardboard in a way that is safe both for volunteers and those delivering materials. The situation will be reviewed again at the start of September.
In the meantime we are looking for new volunteers to help when it is safe to resume. Many of the existing volunteers are in vulnerable groups and whilst many are willing to start work again as soon as it is safe to do so there are still a number of gaps that need to be filled. Anyone interested in helping should contact Ian Gray firstname.lastname@example.org 01729 822465.
The further review will take account of the price we receive for the paper and card collected. This had fallen to virtually nothing last winter and whilst it has been high during the lockdown due to lack of supplies it is now falling again.
