Liberal Democrats call for more transparency on recycling
7:00am Tuesday 22nd January 2013 in News
The Liberal Democrats group is calling on Bradford Council to let the public know just where their recycling ultimately ends up.
He said: “Everyone knows that recycling their rubbish is the right thing to do, but most people are completely unaware of what happens to their recycling after they have put it out.
“This new charter which has been developed by the Resource Association will let people know where their recycled materials have gone and hopefully encourage them to recycle more.
“There is clearly a demand for people to know what happens to their recycling. We don’t want to recycle materials that end up being dumped abroad in countries where people are paid a pittance for sorting it out. I am hoping to persuade fellow councillors to support the Lib Dems and let’s make sure we can be confident about what happens to our recycling,” he added.
The call is contained in a motion to a meeting of the full Council which is due to take place at Bradford City Hall from 4pm today.
