IWC – Recycling Information

Information provided from Isle of Wight Council Waste & Recycling

Hark! Concerned about not recycling properly?

Here are some top tips for recycling commonly wasted paper and card at Christmas in the right way:

Gifts galore
• Christmas cards that don’t have glitter on are recyclable (glitter causes issues in the recycling process as it can’t be removed). So remember to tear off any glitter sections or non-paper items like badges and batteries.
• With wrapping paper and gift bags there is the super handy scrunch test: if you scrunch it and it doesn’t spring back, then it can be recycled – sorted!
• Cardboard packaging, including that from online shopping, can be recycled. Simply flatten to save space and remove any plastic or polystyrene.

A little goes a long way
• Toilet roll tubes often get forgotten but it’s easy and worthwhile to recycle them. If everyone on the Isle of Wight recycled two toilet roll tubes over the Christmas week, it would save enough energy to power the St Mary’s Hospital for one day!

As many of you are now no doubt aware, Ashey Road is closed for works. This is for works by Southern Water, not Island Roads.

Southern Water made a presentation to Ryde Town Council regarding the works. The PowerPoint presentation is attached for your information, but two key slides will answer most of peoples questions regarding times and dates.

High Street works update – Postponed due to adverse weather

An update has been sent from Island Roads regarding the High Street surfacing works, see below.

Unfortunately, due to today’s adverse weather conditions, tonight’s resurfacing works have been postponed.  The road will, however, be subject to a road closure tonight, to enable other remedial works to be carried out.   The resurfacing will be completed tomorrow night Tuesday 12th September, weather conditions permitting.  I will keep you updated in this regard.

Our Traffic Management crew have confirmed to me that they will update the TM boards today, so that residents are made aware.

We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused, and thank you for your continued patience.

Apology from Island Roads

Letter of Apology

Carriageway Resurfacing Works in High Street, Brading

Dear Councillor Tyndall, Councillor Murwill & Brading Town Council

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by our work to resurface Brading High Street which began last night (Sept 7).  As you know this start date was a day earlier than that communicated to residents via letter and the information boards that have been placed on site.

As I hope you will appreciate, our work programme is subject to change due to numerous factors but the change affecting the Brading scheme should have been relayed to residents and business. Human error meant this communication did not occur and, once again, we sincerely apologise for this oversight.

In addition, it appears residents of Quay Lane were not informed of the works and we will be writing to them apologising for this.

We are taking steps to ensure that these issues do not happen in the future.

This resurfacing project is a three-night scheme that will be completed, weather permitting, on the nights of September 8 and 11.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Yours faithfully,

Island Roads
