Sutton is recycling over 50 per cent of household waste

Recycling in Sutton has increased under a new waste and recycling service introduced by Sutton Council working together with Veolia.  Although the implementation of the new waste contract has been challenging, expected dividends are now being realised.

In April 2017 Sutton residents recycled 52.35 per cent of their waste, compared to 38.26 per cent in April 2016 – an increase of just over 14 per cent. In May 2017 residents recycled 51.47 per cent of their waste, compared to 40.43 per cent for the same period the previous year.

Residents put 900 tonnes less rubbish into their brown (general rubbish) wheelie bin and more than 600 tonnes of food waste have been recycled.
