Looking after our local
environment is our number one priority.
Last year (2010/11) we
recycled 40% of all of the household waste that we collected. Well
|Our current, predicted recycling figure for 2012/13:
We are a member of the York and
North Yorkshire Waste Partnership, who aim to reduce
waste, and to promote recycling.
Our recycling rate in
2006/07 was 18.7% and we sent nearly 41,000 tonnes of
household waste to landfill. At the end of last year (2011/12) our
rate was 40%, more than double the 2006/07 figure. Additionally
we only sent just over 27,000 tonnes of household waste to
landfill, which is a reduction of one third on the
figure for 2006/07.
Thank you for recycling and doing
