Newbie ...

Does anyone know what happened to the bottle bank that was on Southwark Bridge Rd (across from the fire station)?
It mysteriously appeared quite some time ago, was well (over) used and has now just as mysteriously disappeared. Only the can deposit remains.

Many thanks

Bottle banks appear to be going missing all over SE1...could this be a job for the Scooby Gang ?

But they now collect from your doorstep once a fortnight. Even I, an unreconstructed non-recycler shall be placing my lovingly emptied bottles of fine burgundy in the recycling box!

So, no more need for banks. Mystery solved (in view of the topic, probably solved by Scrappy.....)

There's quite a lot of info on Southwark Council's website about recycling -
