Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - But Which Authorities do the Best?

Compare Recycling Rates by Authority 2013-2014.


With different rubbish collection methods in use across the country, sita.co.uk have put together an interactive map showing how authorities compare at recycling. Here's a snapshot for Central Bedfordshire, and some other authorities based on figures available for 2013/14. The EU 2020 recycling target is 50 per cent, and this is unlikely to be met unless more authorities pull up their socks up and tackle the problem.

Three Rivers District Council (run by Lib Dems)
Percentage of household waste sent for reuse, recycling or composting: 62.44%
Recycling performance rank: 4th out of 326

Central Bedfordshire Council (run by Conservatives)
Percentage of household waste sent for reuse, recycling or composting: 49.77%
