Food waste recycling coming to Colchester from next week
7:00pm Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
THE introduction of food waste collections to Colchester could boost recycling rates by up to 25 per cent, it is hoped.
Over the next six weeks, more than 70,000 households will receive a roll of caddy liners, a small kitchen bin and a large outdoors bin.
In Colchester, barely 40 per cent of our rubbish is recycled - leaving us lagging well behind the average in Essex and nationwide.
Martin Hunt, councillor responsible for street and waste services, said he was optimistic at least half of our waste will be recycled once the service is fully up and running.
