Residents encouraged to participate in Hertfordshire book reuse scheme

Borehamwood Times: Residents encouraged to participate in Hertfordshire book reuse scheme Residents encouraged to participate in Hertfordshire book reuse scheme

A new book re-use scheme is now available at most of the Household Waste Recycling Centres across Hertfordshire.

Following a successful three month trial, in which more than 17 tonnes of books were collected at six centres, the scheme has been rolled out to a further ten centres in Hertfordshire.

Books in good condition are collected in designated containers and are then sorted for resale by a specialist book re-use company.

Terry Douris, cabinet member for waste management at Hertfordshire County Council, said: "We want to encourage Hertfordshire residents to recycle as much as possible and this new innovation means that people can dispose of their old books in the most environmentally friendly way.

"These new book collection points provide a great opportunity for books to be enjoyed by somebody else after you have finished with them."
