THE electronic recycling bin at Cirencester Tesco has been replaced with normal wheelie bins after customers said they preferred them to the modern system.

The electronic bin at the Kingsmeadow store, which allowed customers to recycle their items one by one, came to the end of its natural shelf life and Tesco made the decision to revert to the old system of wheelie bins.

Customer feedback showed that people preferred using the simple wheelie bins instead of the electronic type.

A Tesco spokesperson said: "We have replaced the automatic recycling facility at our Kings Meadow store with a wheelie bin system. Our customers appreciate the opportunity to help the environment whilst they shop and we are pleased to continue to offer recycling facilities at this store."
