Upping recycling by 10% every year would save a local council £1 million annually, according to one councillor.
Councillor Tony Isherwood, who sits on Bury council, the first local authority in England to collect bins once every three weeks, said:
A lot of this waste could be recycled instead. Given that studies show it's possible to recycle 75% of household waste, we know we can and must do more.
Recycling just 10% more than we do now would save £1m per year.
Residents can be assured that we'll be doing everything we can to smooth the changes for everyone and helping to remove any barriers to recycling.
