Provision of collection sites (also known as bottle or recycling banks and 'bring sites'), for recyclable waste which are easily accessible by local residents (often near supermarkets, in car parks etc.). Sites usually have facilities to collect glass and paper with some also providing facilities for textiles, plastics and cans.
A council may provide local citizens and businesses with general information about waste, recycling, greener alternatives, how to reduce waste and provide access and information about other organisations who may provide associated services (reducing junk mail, furniture reselling etc.)
Gritting of primary and secondary roads within the local authority area when weather conditions may prove hazardous (i.e. freezing temperatures). The local authority may also provide grit bins for public use on roads and pavements in potentially dangerous areas.
