Ashford’s domestic recycling rates have more than trebles since the introduction of the new recycling and refuse service.
The borough has previously been known as the worst recycler in the country with just 14% of its collected domestic waste sent for recycling. It is now at 50%.
Since a new service was rolled out by the council in July, Ashford residents have recycled nearly 4,900 tonnes of dry recyclables, waste food and green waste.
Residents switched from weekly refuse collections to alternate weekly recycling and refuse collections, and a weekly food waste collection – a service used by the top recycling authorities in the country.
– Ashford Borough Council Cllr Jessamy Blanford
This very encouraging performance indicates that Ashford should be well within the top 50 local authorities in the country – a far cry from propping up the bottom of the county and country league tables.
