PEOPLE in the East Riding Council area had one of the highest recycling rates in the country in July.
The rate is 62 per cent, significantly higher than the 50 per cent Government target, and the council says the success is partly down to its new fortnightly recycling bin collection.
Cllr Symon Fraser said: “I am being asked, what about 70 per cent? Can we do it? My answer is that if anyone can, East Riding residents can.”
