Mid Suffolk still top dry recycler in England

by martinredbond on 26 November, 2007

 Figures have just been released by Defra (Department of Envronment, Food and Rural Affairs) which measure the levels of waste for each Council in England. The aim is to expose the best and worst performing local authorities. For the second year running, Mid Suffolk District Council is leading the way in Suffolk and is helping to reduce the amount of waste that is landfillled. It is well positioned in the following three categories: 

  •  Top 10 dry recyclers – 34.2% (1st place)
  •  Lowest total household waste per head (3rd place)
  •  Lowest residual household waste per head after recycling (4th place) 

Thanks are due to all residents for their contribution to this success. Mid Suffolk entered into a joint waste partnership with Babergh District Council and Serco, the waste collection provider, in April this year. The new arrangement is also making significant cash savings.
