More than 50% of borough’s ‘red top’ rubbish could have been recycled

Recycling rates in Telford and Wrekin have increased, but householders are being urged to separate waste and recycle more after a recent

sample study of waste collected showed that more than 50% of household rubbish going into red top bins could have been recycled.

The annual results table published by Defra released in March this year, showed 47% of household waste was recycled in the borough in 2019/20, up 2.2% on the previous year, and 3.2% better than the average in England of 43.8%.Whilst the news was welcomed by local councillors and Veolia, more can be done to improve the amount households are recycling.
