At this Tursday;'s Full Council meeting, Cllr Lindsay Ferris (Twyford ward) has submitted a question that reflects the Lib Dem group's concerns with why the Borough's recycling rates that have stalled at around 40% . This is really disappointing and has happened despite the Conservative's claims that the new waste service implemented in April 2012 would give a boost to the borough's recycling. This scheme has not made a difference and the Council needs to take some action, recycling rates need to be improved and the Council could achieve this by extending recycling to include more types of waste such as food waste. The low rates of recycling cost our residents money in landfill charges.
