England's Recycling Rates Increase!

Great news all around, I've just read a report that indicates that England's recycling rates have grown to 40.3% of all household waste. This is really good news as it shows year on year progression and growth since 2007!

(09/10 - 40.1%, 08/09 - 39.7%, 07/08 - 38.8%)

We'd like to offer our thanks to everyone who is working so hard spreading the word about sustainability and recycling. Not only are we recycling more in England but we're also producing less waste, last year the total weight of household waste fell by 200,000 tonnes in England.

Let's stick at it, redouble our efforts and we'll get there eventually! :)

Alex.
