Recycling banks situated around the borough will be removed but residents who regularly use them are being urged to continue the good habit.
Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council has taken the decision to get rid of five large carton banks which are located in the two towns.
The plan to remove the containers, which are also known as ‘bring sites’ has been put in place as a result of the success of an alternative recycling scheme which was introduced to homeowners last year.
In October 2011, residents were issued with a brown lidded bin which all recyclable items including glass, paper, tins and cartons can go into it.
The convenient method has proved a hit in the home with more waste being recycled than before the scheme began and consequently it has led to a significant drop in the tonnage of cartons collected in the five banks.
Three of the banks being taken away are currently based in Nuneaton at Asda car park in Newtown Road, Co-Op car park in Abbey Street and Judkin's Household Waste Recycling Centre onTuttle Hill.
Bedworth banks found in Tesco car park in Leicester Street and the Civic Hall car park will also be removed.
Former Mayor of Nuneaton and Bedworth, councillor Neil Phillips, who is cabinet member for Health and Environment, said: "It is fantastic news that the amount of cartons being recycled has increased and shows that this was an important addition to the kerbside recycling service.
"Thank you to all residents across the borough for supporting the new recycling scheme."
The carton banks were installed in 2010, before the new rubbish scheme came into play, to allow everyone to bin their orange juice, long life milk and soup containers in an environmentally friendly way.
Originally members of the public were making regular trips to them and those that have continued to use them despite the Easy as 1..2..3 scheme starting up are now being urged to take full advantage of the brown lid bins.
Anyone that will now be using them for the first time are being reminded that as wel l as cartons,cans, jars, plastic packaging, foil and aerosol cans can be thrown into them. The separate container is for catalogues, phone directories, cereal boxes and other paper and cardboard items only.
Brown lidded bins are collected fortnightly on alterative weeks to the black bin collection.
Any additional recyclable waste can be left in a bag at the side of the bin and removal officers will take it away.
