Household waste levels rise in the UK

clip_image002The BBC has reported that household waste levels in the UK have risen in almost 60% of council controlled areas in the past three years. Councils have responded by blaming a change from weekly to fortnightly bin collections as well as green waste charges and housing growth.

In Leicester there has been an 18% increase in the average amount of residual household waste, rising from 488.56kg per household to 579kg per household. However, despite the disappointing figures Leicester City Council is among a number of councils taking steps to address the situation of falling recycling levels, such as through their Orange Bag scheme. This popular scheme has increased recycling rates in the area by 5% by replacing green recycling boxes.

Here at LSPS recycling is of great importance to us and we help businesses and individuals all across Leicestershire to reduce the amount of their waste that ends up at landfill sites. Our Waste Transfer Station is open to traders and has an extensive range of state of the art equipment.
