Sup­port na­tional week by re­cy­cling at home

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A DIS­TRICT coun­cil is urg­ing res­i­dents to re­cy­cle more to sup­port Na­tional Re­cy­cle Week (June 22 to 26).

As part of the week, South Bucks Dis­trict Coun­cil is pro­mot­ing the year’s theme ‘Re­cy­cling around the home’.

It is en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to re­cy­cle items found all over the house and want peo­ple to look past the kitchen when re­cy­cling.

South Bucks dis­trict coun­cil­lor Luisa Sul­li­van, port­fo­lio holder for en­vi­ron­ment, said: “We would like to thank our res­i­dents for help­ing us in­crease our re­cy­cling rate from 34 per cent to more than 50 per cent since in­tro­duc­ing the im­proved col­lec­tion ser­vice in 2014.

“Thanks to their ef­forts, the dis­trict con­tin­ues to in­crease the amount of waste that is di­verted away from land­fill and gets re­cy­cled.

“This helps to save re­sources, energy and pro­tect the en­vi­ron­ment for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions, so please keep it up and help us achieve a 60 per cent re­cy­cling rate.”

A full list of what can and can­not be re­cy­cled is avail­able on the re­cy­cling pages of the web­site at www.south­bucks.gov.uk.
