Recycling in Porthleven
Its recently struck me that for the size of Porthleven (3,500 people) we do not have any of the small bottle banks and other types of recycling banks in this Town (or Village if you prefer). If you wish to empty your recycling outside the fortnightly collection round you have to go to Helston to do this.
Well, things could change. I am planning to place 3 of the smaller kinds of banks in Shrubberies Hill Car Park. This I believe would be the ideal location as you can easily park and unload and it isn’t that far from the centre of Porthleven.
I am hoping to have these in place within the next few weeks (subject to a small survey) on a 6 month trial. If successful, then I’m hoping that these will become permanent. The last banks in Porthleven were in 2004. These were subject to some misuse. I hope that this will now not be the case, and people will not just dump rubbish at this site.
The old saying goes, If you abuse it, you lose it.
