BRIGHTON Council is looking after the needs of its residents and the environment by rolling out new yellow and green 240-litre recycling bins on September 1.
The new bins will replace the crates householders currently use for recyclables such as old newspapers, magazines and cardboard, as well as empty milk cartons, bottles and cans. The crates can hold only 60 litres of recyclables, which is one quarter of the capacity of the new bins, and residents have to carry them to the kerbside every week.

A MAJOR focus of the Learning Federation is to increase and enhance the range of quality early years education and care for very young children and their families.
We are doing so because there is a lot of evidence that the first few years of life are vital to helping children to achieve their potential
Our main strategies are to develop our three primary schools as birth to grade four education centres, to build a children and family centre locally, and work collaboratively with other early childhood service providers to develop a broader and more cohesive model for supporting the families of young children. We have made a lot of progress in that area in recent weeks.
MORE than to 80 parents and children came together as guests of children’s charity The Smith Family to experience an interactive educational theatre performance at the Brighton Civic Centre in April.
