Recycling success

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Recycling ratesThank you to everyone for helping us recycle even more. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The new recycling service has helped us to increase the recycling rates ​across the borough of Rochdale. With your help we can recycle even more and reach our average target of 54% in 2016/20​17.​​

More recycling means we spend less on waste disposal, helping us to protect other essential services.
