IMPORTANT NEWS - Plastic Recycling
Chelmsford City Council will no longer be supplying residents with additional rolls for recycling. In response to the climate and ecology emergency declared in July 2019, they have loooked at areas where we can eliminate or reduce single-use plastics within their organisation. The decision was made to no longer issue outposts with rolls of plastic recycling bags with immediate effect. They will continue to deliver a roll of plastic sacks to each household once a year.
Dog foul bags will also no longer be issued. Part of being a responsible dog owner is picking up your dog's waste. Once the limited supply of bags held by the Parish Council at the Keene Hall has gone there will be no more.
