5 Tees Valley Local Authorities Logos with Recycle for Tees Valley

In a first for the region the five Tees Valley councils have come together to let a new contract that’s helping to boost recycling rates across the Tees Valley.

Hartlepool-based J&B Recycling will service 74 sites on behalf of Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Stockton and Redcar & Cleveland.

The sites feature more than 340 new containers and more frequent collections, enabling residents to recycle more than ever.

The contract is the first time a single operator has been appointed to deliver the service across the Tees Valley.

Materials now collected from the sites:

  • Glass
  • Paper
  • Cardboard
  • Cans
  • Plastics
  • Cartons (Tetra Pak)
  • Textiles and shoes

As well as offering a more economic and efficient service, the new containers – in easily accessible locations such as supermarket car parks - will improve the appearance and cleanliness of sites, reduce congestion and ensure materials are collected effectively.

A spokesman for the five Teesside authorities said: “The completed sites look excellent and initial feedback from the public is very positive.

“We’re delighted at the successful co-operation between the five Councils and the benefits of going into partnership with J&B Recycling, working together across the region to offer a more streamlined, efficient and user-friendly service.

“People are keener than ever to recycle as much as possible of their household waste, and do their bit for the environment.

“In addition to our extensive doorstep collections, these new colour-coded and clearly branded containers will increase participation from the public by showing clearly what can be recycled and where it goes.

“And because we’re providing the same service across the five authority areas, we save money by operating a more efficient service.”
