A town council may want to use promotional gifts to let residents know about new recycling services running.

One of Immingham Town Council’s sites in Immingham, Grimsby, now takes paper, glass, cans and plastic bottles, with two charity banks for textiles and shoes, meaning people can now recycling more items at the site, This is Grimsby reports.

Promotional gifts could be used to help spread the word about the additional services.

Staging an open day or handing out printed pens at the site’s gate would help encourage new visitors and persuade regular users to keep on coming.

The new services are part of an effort by Grimsby Council to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.

“We want people to use these facilities properly and, with the council’s help, it has been given a facelift to bring it up to a suitable standard – we now want people to make good use of it so it remains that way,” Dave Jackson, town clerk for Immingham Town Council, was quoted as saying.
