York residents recycle 880 tonnes in two weeks
8:04am Monday 23rd January 2012 in Eco info
RESIDENTS in York recycled more than 880 tonnes of material through a kerbside collection service in the first two weeks of 2012.
Their efforts have saved the city almost £50,000 in landfill tax payments, which are due to increase in April.
Coun Dafydd Williams, City of York Council’s cabinet member for communities and neighbourhoods, said: “I’d like to thank local residents for all their hard work in recycling their Christmas waste. It really does make a significant difference, not just the overall sustainability of the city, but also to the council’s budget.”
