Recycling rates

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​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.
