Ipswich Borough Council has been awarded £20k from the Chewing Gum Task Force grant scheme to tackle chewing gum on streets at two known problem locations - Ipswich Waterfront and the town centre - for the next few years.
At a meeting of Ipswich Borough Council’s Executive tonight it was announced that Ipswich Buses has stepped in to grant the last bus on routes 3E, 5E, 8, 9 and 13 a reprieve until at least the end of the year.
Be more 'Brown Bin Aware' and reduce contamination in brown bins from items that cannot be composted. Material Change, our local green waste recycling facility, takes all brown bin waste and turns it into compost and soil improver to be used on gardens. They look forward to improving the quality of the compost they produce even more by keeping out material not meant for brown bins.
Ipswich Borough Council funds some bus services in the town that would not be commercially viable for a bus operator to operate. Although Suffolk County Council are the transport authority with responsibility for supporting bus services, the Council steps in to subsidise services to ensure their availability for those who need to travel at times when buses are less busy.
