Understanding recycling habits
Flintshire County Councillors, Town and Community Councils, residents and
service users are being asked to take part in a survey over the coming weeks,
to help the Council understand local needs, so that a full review of the Waste
Collection, Household Recycling and Bring Site Policy can be undertaken. The
review is necessary to ensure the Council achieves future challenging statutory
recycIing targets set by Welsh Government.
Flintshire County Councils Cabinet Member for Waste Strategy, Councillor Kevin
Whilst thanking our residents for their ongoing support, by choosing to
recycle more, we can all help make Flintshire cleaner and greener and save
£1.33 million every year - money that could be spent on other vital services
around the county.
We are now recycling over 58% of waste, but we must do more. All Councils in
Wales must recycle at least 70% of their waste by 2025. We need to find ways to
recycle more today so that, in future, we can reduce our landfill costs and
avoid significant fines for not recycling enough.
We would like to know more about household recycling habits, so that we can
find ways to help people recycle more.
Information on how to take part in the survey can be found on the Councils
website www.flintshire.gov.uk/RecycleMore. The closing date for responses is
