LESS IS BEST - RECYCLING UP
Lib Dem led Colchester Borough Council has another recycling success.
Progress means 58% of all rubbish is now recycled. That's a massive 11% increase on the same first quarter in 2017. Individual recycling items have all seen an increase.
The result - 2,389 more tonnes of recyclable materials. And the great news is that non-recyclable rubbish for this period was also down by 22%. All of which means less landfill and cost. This reflects changes to waste collections across the borough in order to boost recycling rates and reduce the amount of rubbish.
The Lib Dem lead Martin Goss, Portfolio Holder for Waste, Environment and Transportation, said he was 'delighted to be able to share the excellent news' and thanked residents and businesses for their continued recycling efforts. 'There is always more we can all do reduce our impact on the environment and improve our recycling rates even further, and the upcoming introduction of plastic recycling in flats is a great example'.
Lib Dems. Leading the way.
