Recycling Map

Coming soon….A map of recycling points in Fordingbridge. We hope to have the community recycling shed up and running by the end of October. This means that lots of items that you currently have to take distances to recycle will be able to be dropped off in Fordingbridge.

But in the meantime you may find this spreadsheet helpful………
