Recycling Rates Rise in Norfolk

Recycling Rates Rise in Norfolk

We've now been able to put things like glass in our recycling bin for a month and Norfolk County Council says recycling rates have shot up as a result.

Around 10% more of the stuff we all throw away is now being recycled - we'll have to wait a bit longer for a proper figure though.

Councillor John Fisher is in charge of waste management... He says it's working really well:

"The changes have been picked up by the residents and been taken on board. I think we need to thank everyone for getting involved with it. We were worried the messages about new ways to recycle wouldn't get through, but they have."

He also told us they've been wanting to do this for a long time as people have been asking why they couldn't recycle glass until now:

"They wanted to be able to put it into their bins. Evidence identifies that this causes more recycling. Basically if you can make recycling easier then you get more done."
