Hurrah, Recycle More recycles more
Somerset’s recycling rate is at an all time high and rubbish levels have fallen, thanks to green-thinking residents. The rate jumped from 2020-21’s 52.2% to just over 56% in 2021-22 and could go higher as Recycle More beds in. And families discarding tonnes less rubbish every week have far emptier refuse bins.
By embracing Recycle More, Somerset’s recycling performance is likely to put the county in the top 10% when national figures are shared later in the year.
