Waste costs - recycling earns
Each year 32,000 tonnes of your items that could be recycled goes to landfill! This is clearly very damaging to both your wallets and to the environment in which we all live. Each bin lorry that you see going to the landfill site carries approximately 10 tonnes of rubbish and is charged at a rate of £84 per tonne.
This cost is paid by your taxes. Anything saved could be better spent on other public services. Would you like to see more Police Officers on the street? Would you like to see better services for the elderly? “Think before you throw”
