County council chiefs urge residents to think green when recycling

Stratford Editorial 12th Jul, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

RECYCLING chiefs in Warwickshire are urging residents to think green and help save money.

Some 70,000 tonnes of green waste is currently recycled each year in the county – around 26 per cent of all waste – saving £3million in disposal costs.

With 16,000 tonnes of green waste currently ending up in landfill in grey bins, composting at home can save up to an additional £1.3million a year.

Since 2005 Warwickshire County Council Waste Partnership has rolled out over 25,000 compost bins to Warwickshire homes.

The partnership is also urging residents to think about the planet when cleaning out their pets.

Wood shavings, hay and straw from herbivorous pets such as rabbits, guinea pigs and chickens can be recycled in the council’s green bin or composted.
