Thank you to everyone for helping us recycle even more. Our recycling service has helped us increase the kerbside recycling rates across the borough of Rochdale. With your help we can recycle even more and reach our average kerbside target of 54% in 2019-2020.
More recycling means we spend less on waste disposal, helping us to protect other essential services.
The monthly figures in the table below are based on kerbside bin collection tonnages.
