Copeland recycling team have a busy festive period


Copeland residents have pulled out all the stops to recycle in the recent holidays.

Over Christmas and new year, the average amount collected each week was 71 tonnes. This compares to an average of 65 tonnes over the rest of the year.

The increased card, paper, glass, plastic and metal created by the festive season is equivalent to an extra three lorry loads each week.

On the Saturday and Sunday between Christmas and new year - the team's busiest weekend - an impressive 40 tonnes were collected.

Copeland's Elected Mayor, Mike Starkie, said: "We all create more recycling at Christmas and it's great to see it being put out for collection to be made into other products.

"I'd like to congratulate everyone in Copeland who recycles and urge them to keep up the good work. Twenty tonnes in one day is a huge achievement. It was an extremely busy time and I want to commend our collection teams, who worked tirelessly to deliver our service during the Christmas holidays."
