MORE brown bins are set to be wheeled out across Ipswich.

Green-fingered householders can look forward to the delivery of a brown bin in October, subject to funding, after the borough council agreed to roll out 10,700 more.

But exactly which will benefit remains uncertain as the decision will be taken over the summer.

An Ipswich Borough Council spokesman said: "We are determined to roll out the brown bins across Ipswich.

"We are pleased that thousands of residents are already working with us to recycle more and so protect our environment."

The bins are used to recycle garden and kitchen rubbish such as grass cuttings and vegetable peelings.
