Keeping changes to a minimum, it will increase our recycling rates and reduce the amount going to landfill. Although many of you are keen recyclers, we know many more want to increase the amount they recycle. We all have a responsibility to reuse and recycle more, as continuing to send waste to landfill is unacceptable for the environment and will ultimately impact on your pocket.” Cllr Gary Cowan, Executive Member for Environment Executive view
