CHRISTMAS/NEW YEAR RECYCLING IN BEETLEY

As Christmas and New Year will soon be upon us, with the possibility of additional bottles being emptied please continue to recycle your glass at the New Inn bottle bank, to ensure that this facility remains and the cash comes back to Beetley Parish and not to Breckland Council. This recycling bank may be removed if not used as Breckland Council is still considering the future of all banks in parishes.

THIS YEAR’S PAYMENT FROM BRECKLAND COUNCIL WAS £400.45.
