Residents are being asked for their views on proposals to further reduce waste and increase recycling in South Gloucestershire.

The council has launched a three-month consultation on its draft waste management strategy for the period 2013-19.

Proposals in the strategy include extending kerbside collection services to include mixed plastics and small electrical items, and introducing a more comprehensive recycling service for residents living in flats.

The strategy also proposes measures to charge for garden waste collection, like neighbouring authorities, to encourage home composting and ensure that the cost of the service is met by those who use it.

Details, and an online survey, can be accessed via the council's website at www.southglos.gov.uk/wasteconsultation

For an opportunity to find out more and discuss the proposals – there will be the following council presentations in Thornbury:

- 12 March, 7pm – Waste Management Forum, Council Chamber, Thornbury

- 15 May, 7pm – SevernVale Area Forum, Council Chamber, Thornbury
