City of York Council originally outlined plans to introduce a pilot scheme back in November, when the proposals were taken to a meeting for approval here
As well as providing an update on the York Community Recycling Fund and initiatives to reduce fly-tipping, approval was also given to undertake a pilot of the recycling boxes, using the £20k already allocated.
The pilot will start on Monday 11 March for up to six months and will offer up to three replacement recycle boxes to households in York.
