Barnet and ECT expand collected materials

Plans to drive household recycling rates up to 40% by 2010 have been announced by the Barnet Council and ECT Recycling partnership.

The partners have signed a five-year deal to boost rates by adding bottles and cardboard to the already extensive range of materials collected. This includes paper, glass, tins and cans, aluminium foils, shoes, mobile phones, textiles, engine oil and batteries.

It is hoped the collection of extra materials will ensure the council hits its 40% recycling target by 2010 and goes on to hit 45% recycling rates by 2014.

The council said the improvements will be implemented towards the end of the year.

A baling facility for cans, plastic bottles and cardboard will be added at the Mill Hill depot to make transporting bulk material easier.
