A number of recycling roadshows are continuing to take place across Carlisle and north Cumbria.

Organised by the city council, they are an opportunity for residents to find out more about the recent changes made to refuse and recycling services.

From June 12, Carlisle City Council extended its kerbside recycling service to more properties and is asking residents to sort their recycling slightly differently.

It means that some households may be asked to put their bins, bags and boxes out on a different day.

Residents have been asked to check their new collection calendars, which were delivered to households in mid May, to confirm the day of the week to put their refuse, garden waste and recycling out for collection.

Residents are now asked to put their paper into a green bag with their cardboard.

Meanwhile empty food and drink cartons, such as tetrapak, can be put into the same bag.

Plastic must go into a separate green bag and should not be mixed with paper, cardboard and cartons.

Green boxes should only be used for tins, cans and glass.

A roadshow will be taking place at Asda in Kingstown between 9am and 1pm today.

A further event will be held at Brampton Farmers' Market between 9.30am and 1pm on Saturday.

Residents will also be able to find out more information at the farmers' market in Carlisle city centre between 9.30am and 3.30pm on Saturday, July 1.
