Recycling
 
 
How we are doing

Summary of overall performance 2012/13

The council's aim to improve recycling rates through targeted campaigns and actions for paper and glass has been helped by the successful bid of £1.8million for the introduction of kerbside glass collection across the district.  With struggling recycling rates we are hoping that the new scheme will make it easier for residents to recycle glass and the districts recycling rates will improve.  This and other initiatives helping the council to achieve it's overall aim of protecting the environment and promoting the wise use of natural resources.

29% of all household waste collected is sorted at the 'materials recycling facility' with items such as paper, glass, cans and plastics being recycled and sold to sustainable markets.  These markets have provided a valuable income to the council which has increased over this financial year.
