Tonnes and Tonnes of Success with Recycling

We are proud as Liberal Democrats in encouraging the council to expand recycling across the District – even though some Conservatives had to be dragged almost kicking and screaming into agreeing.

And recycling is proving a great success – these are the initial collection figures:

Week 1 – 35 tonnes
Week 2 – 26 tonnes
Week 3 – 81 tonnes
Week 4 – 68 tonnes
Week 5 – 87 tonnes
Week 6 – 65 tonnes

(the ‘even’ weeks have fewer houses than the ‘odd’ weeks)

At this rate residents will supply so much material over the year that the council will benefit from a share of the profits…
