Rubbish Bin Trial

For the first half of this year we will be trying out large Bins from the local council to try and counteract the number of anglers leaving rubbish in their swims when they leave. “Please use the bins now provided”.

There will be two large general rubbish and two Recycling bins situated by the shower block between Manor and St. Johns Lakes and the same again just before you turn onto the Brasenose Lakes. We would ask that you use the recycling bins responsibly and please refrain from putting any unused bait, food or human waste into the recyclable bins.

The general waste bins are completely green in colour and the recycling bins are green with a dark brown lid, they will also be marked with signage. If this trial works we may do the same up at Oxlease and Hunts later in the year, until then please use the bins mentioned above.

Thanks in advance, for your help in making this trial work and in helping keep the fishery tidy for all its anglers.
