Harborough, Oadby & Wigston Green party have release their report into the effectiveness of the recycling system in Harborough District, the report does not cover the affectivness of the system rather just the self declared rates of the council.
A number of Freedom of information requests were made to identify the key figures required to plot rates over the last decade, we also made requests to see how the CO2 emmissions of the Waste handling system were being recorded.
The big picture is that "Recycling" rates have been dropping and that there is a clear correlation with the decrease and the closure of the free Green waste collection service which also seems to have instigated a downward trend after the initial peak of Green waste entering the general waste system.
The report can be read by following the link below.
