Cornwall awarded funding for recycling

Posted on:

Cornwall Council has been given extra funding from the government in a bid to improve recycling numbers. The £1.56million donated will be spent on encouraging people to recycle as well as other green initiatives.

It is believed that the council will focus on rolling out the collection of plastic pots and trays and will also spend money on improving household waste and existing recycling centres. Councillors say they are focussing on recycling plastics as many locals are keen to get rid of their plastic pots, tubs and trays.

The money has been made available from a government fund which has been specifically set up to encourage councils to continue with weekly rubbish collections. Local councillors are ecstatic that they have received this additional funding. Many believe that the grant will help increase the amount of recycling by 9,000 tonnes each and every year.
