WOMEN are being asked to support breast cancer research by recycling their unwanted bras.

Hertsmere Borough Council has installed bright pink 'bra bins' at two locations in Potters Bar, and is asking as many women as possible to donate.

Some of the bras that are collected will be sent to women in poorer countries, while the remainder will be recycled and the money donated to the Breast Cancer Campaign.

Councillor Jean Heywood, environment portfolio holder, said: "This is a fantastic project and it shows that you can recycle just about everything!

"By recycling your bras not only will less waste be sent to landfill but women in poorer countries will benefit and you will be helping to fund research into breast cancer.

"So next time you pop to the shops or the gym, or go to your local recycling centre, take your old bras with you and pop them in one of the pink banks; you really can't miss them!"

The bra bins can be found at the Wyllyotts Centre, off Darkes Lane, and at Furzefield Leisure Centre, in Mutton Lane.

Bras need to be bagged up before being deposited in the bins.
