There were 17 new planning applications for Church, Katesgrove, Minster, Redlands and Whitley wards this week. They may be discussed at one of the next Reading Borough Council planning applications committees.
The Smallmead recycling centre on Island Road is selling ‘re3grow’ compost, available in 40 litre bags for £3.50 or 3 bags for £10. It has been processed in Oxfordshire from garden waste taken directly to the tip and from kerbside green waste collections; 90% of the content is from Reading, Wokingham or Bracknell.
You can find out what happens to the rubbish you put into your recycling bin during recyling week, which lasts until 29 September. The re3 material recycling facility (MRF) off Reading’s A33, more commonly known as the Smallmead tip, is running free public tours this week.
