Householders in Aylesbury Vale are doing a great job recycling – and are being encouraged to do even better over national Recycle Week (Monday 25 September to Sunday 1 October).
Aylesbury Vale District Council residents recycle on average 52% of their waste each year – well above the national average of 44%.
Cllr Sir Beville Stanier, Cabinet Member for Environment and Waste, said: “I would like to say thank you to all of our residents who put in the effort and recycle regularly.
“For Recycle Week it would be great to see an even bigger effort, especially from those who haven’t really gotten into the recycling habit yet. Everyone doing their bit will help England reach its target of 65% by 2030.”
