Stockport residents are being encouraged to recycle right by placing the right things in the right bin.
Recycle for Greater Manchester says it will be running a number of informative campaigns throughout the year – kick-started with a focus on recycling the right type of paper and card following the busy festive season.
Putting the wrong things in the wrong recycling bins can be very expensive for councils. Last year it cost over £640,000 to dispose of incorrect items that people across Greater Manchester put into their paper and card bins.
Stockport council has highlighted that local residents have previously been found to be some of the best at recycling in the country.
