New Spider Mower is a cut above for grassy banks

Spider Mower

Nottingham City Council has a new tool in its tool-shed which is a cut above the rest a Spider Mower which is to keeping grassy banks neat and tidy across Nottingham.

Hundreds of grass banks in neighbourhoods around the city are difficult to cut, because normal ride-on mowers cant get up them as they are liable to tip over risking the safety of the operator.

The remote-controlled Spider Mower is designed for the maintenance of sloping banks with tall or short grass. It moves up and down banks of up to 55 degrees via remote control and cuts anything from grass to thick vegetation such as nettles. It has many safety aspects including an alarm warning if the bank is too steep. The climbing ability and safety of operations can also be increased by the installation of a winch. The winch works automatically as it is synchronised with the wheel drive, which ensures high comfort of operation.

Unsure about what goes in your Garden Waste Bin?

Garden Waste

We have been experiencing some contamination in garden waste bins across the city.

To help us increase recycling rates and keep our costs down, please ensure you do not put household waste in the bin. If there is any rubbish on your lawn when it is cut, please remove this from the garden waste before you put it in the bin.

Further guidance on what can go in the bin and what can not is below.

Please ensure you follow these guidelines as you could risk losing your bin under our new contamination policy if the bin is contaminated:

Yes please

  • Grass cuttings
  • Hedge clippings
  • Twigs and small branches
  • Leaves and weeds
  • Dead flowers
  • Small amounts of potting compost (not bags)

No thanks

  • Bagged garden waste
  • Any waste that is accepted in your grey bin or brown bin with the grey lid
  • Plant pots
  • Plastic bags
  • Large amounts of soil or grass sods
  • Animal waste
  • Treated wood
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Organic food waste

Recycle Now uses street magic ...

Glass Magic

Do you recycle your glass in your recycling bin?

Metals and glass can be recycled again and again and to highlight this Recycle Now has teamed up with a magician to perform some mind-boggling street magic tricks to show how recycling metal and glass packaging items can be transformed into new things!

For instance, a glass bottle could power a toaster to toast 14 slices of bread. And it could power a kettle to make 6 cups of tea!
