The Rotary Club of Sleaford now has five ‘big red bins’ in locations in Sleaford and Ruskington. Members of the public are able to ‘donate’ used aluminium drinks cans for recycling. We would like these to be crushed using the device mounted on the bins (simply to use up less space) but some have been inserted whole. Members of the Rotary Club have therefore undertaken ‘Operation Big Foot’ to flatten as many as possible and the cans have now been taken to a recycling plant in Lincoln with the proceeds going to Rotary Charities including the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance.
“We thank the public for their efforts in providing the cans,” said Club President Tony Dixon. “We hope to have additional bins available in villages in the local area in the coming months.”
