Warwickshire County Council’s environment spokesperson Coun Heather Timms said: “I want to thank householders in Warwickshire, who have also stepped up their recycling in 2023 as well as reduced general waste. Thanks to efforts to separate out recycling in homes up and down the county, our recycling in Warwickshire has risen.

“Information about recycling will be kept up to date on the web over the holidays, including how to book a visit to a recycling centre. The appointments lead to an efficient visit, with much-reduced queues. Please separate your waste streams for recycling as you pack your car. Recycling all that you can at home and at the recycling centre is one easy way for householders to cut their carbon emissions and help the environment.”
