Recycling collection success in East Yorkshire
8:49am Thursday 15th March 2012 in Eco info
NEW recycling waste collections in East Yorkshire have led to a large fall in the amount of waste being sent to landfill.
It has also prompted a sharp rise in emails to East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s informal service for recycling queries, firstname.lastname@example.org, which is checked daily by the authority’s waste and recycling officers and has received nearly 10,500 queries after a slow start.
Glass and plastics are now collected in blue recycling bins, with food waste and cardboard in the brown bins.
