East Hampshire District Council is urging residents to make a new year pledge to put only recyclable items in their black wheelie bins.

A spokesman said: “Many of you want to recycle more than is currently possible.

“But what we can take is set by Hampshire County Council, and the key thing is not to put anything in recycling bins that can’t be recycled.”
