Recycling - how can we do it better

What a lovely picture of me with a load of rubbish at the Council's Longley Lane depot. I was there to launch a three month Council consultation on what you think we should do to improve recycling in Manchester. The last few years have already since massive improvements in recycling from a miserable 3% to now over 20% but we could do much better. As I go round the ward talking to people and when I attend residents' meetings, recycling is one of the issues most raised . If we are going to recycle more then we have to have recycling services tailored to residents' requirements and that is what this consultation is all about. You can join in by using freephone number 0800 995 1911 ( and be entered into a £500 prize draw ) or by logging on to the Council's website http://www.manchester.gov.uk/
