Holbrook: Recycling officials fail to keep up with post-festive rush
10:00 07 January 2013
RECYCLING centre officials had hoped to be ready for the post-Christmas rush – but in one Suffolk village that didn’t seem to be the case.
This was the scene at the bottle banks in Holbrook, based at the village primary school, with a severe overflow leading to an eyesore.
Reader Garth Mclean said: “The containers have been filled for several days with a large amount of ‘overflow’ and no sign of anything being done about it.
“The bottle bank in the village is situated at the primary school and it would be very unfortunate if the situation was not cleared before the pupils returned to school.”
In the past some recycling centres have struggled to cope with the aftermath of the festive season and special efforts were apparently being made this year to keep up with the rush.
