Recycling record

MORE rubbish is being recycled in Enfield than ever before.

Almost 10,000 tonnes of household waste were recycled in the six months from April to September double the amount than in the same period last year.

This means Enfield Council is ahead of its target to recycle and compost 12 per cent of the total waste generated in the borough, thanks partly to an extension of the door-to-door recycling collections.

Material is also being collected through local recycling banks and at the borough's two recycling centres.

Councillor Terry Neville, the council's Cabinet Member for Environment, said: "Thanks are due to all the residents who are helping Enfield to beat our recycling targets.

"This shows once again that people are concerned about the environment, and keeping the borough rubbish-free.

"It is up to the council to meet residents' expectations in these areas."
