The waste strategy for the District Council has been published.
Residents can now recycle more waste materials than ever before - more plastics, more cardboard, paper, foil, cartons, cans and aerosols. Glass is also collected - in the existing blue box.
The new kerbside system should see us hit our target of recycling and composting 53% of waste by 2020 - which will make us the top performer in North Yorkshire and 3% above the national target. Success depends on residents making best use of the service and striving to reduce, reuse and recycle the waste they produce.
The new strategy can be found here - hard copies are available to read at the council's offices in Northallerton, Easingwold and Stokesley and all Hambleton based libraries.
