New recycling banks have been installed in Alex Way, Portsmouth, to enable residents to recycle even more waste.

The banks can be used for recycling cartons for a range of products including long life or non-dairy milk, soups and juice - often known as Tetra Paks, and coffee cups.

This is the third carton bank installation in the city, the others can be found at Asda, Fratton and Morrisons, Anchorage Park. 

Councillor Dave Ashmore, Portsmouth City Council's Cabinet Member for Environment & Climate Change, said: "I'm happy that we have opened another carton recycling bank site and hope it proves popular with residents, as have the other two in the city. We want to offer people as many opportunities as possible to recycle and this is another step in the right direction. We're aiming to keep increasing the range of products that can be recycled in the city and make it easier for residents to get involved."

There are more than 100 recycling points around the city where you can recycle items which can't be collected from home such as glass, clothes, books, DVDs, cartons/tetra paks.
