Recycling project is smashing success

A recycling trial that has been piloted in the Whitby area over the last six months has proved to be a smashing success.

Allowing residents to put glass in their blue bins since last November has generated ten extra tonnes of recycling a week for the borough council.

Cllr Bill Chatt said: “The trial has been a huge success in Whitby thanks to residents doing their bit and recycling the correct items in their blue bin.”
