Swindon On Course To Beat It's Own Recycling Target

Over the last few months strides have been made in Swindon's recycling and refuse collection, to the point that it has won an award.

Coverage by the Advertiser has explained that the authority avoids, almost entirely, rejecting loads of recyclables due to contamination. We're not sure how they achieve that, but we're unable to find that section of the story online, which was part of the print edition, which explains it.

On a further plus side, the town is currently recycling 47 per cent of waste and has a ten commandments-style target of 50 per cent by 2010, so it's expected to reach that target early.

Swindon Centric Says ; So everyone who has been committed to the recycling shift,residents and council workers, well done.
