Removal of Cornwall Council operated Recycling Banks

Cornwall Council is now making arrangements to remove the banks from Antony Road Car Park site during the week commencing 31 August 2020. 
Signs at the site will be installed from 10 August 2020, informing users that the banks will be permanently removed from the week commencing 31 August 2020.  The signage will remain at the site for 4 weeks after the removal of the banks, to remind users how to recycle their waste, and to advise that any material left at the site after the removal will be classified as fly tipping.
Following removal of the banks, the area in which the recycling banks were located will be monitored. Any recycling material left there will be investigated as fly tipping by the Council team.
The site also has textile banks provided by independent charities. Cornwall Council do not manage these banks and will not be removing them as part of this process but will be writing to the charities to let them know about our plan. It is possible that the charities may choose to either remove or relocate these banks within the area.
An up to date list of removal dates for sites throughout Cornwall is published on the Cornwall Council website which can be found by clicking the following link;
If you have any queries, or you wish to discuss the removal of the recycling bank service, please contact Cornwall Council Waste Service by emailing and a member of the team will contact you.
