Selby's Sorted scheme hailed as an example for the nation

Selby District Council’s successful business recycling scheme — Sorted — has been recognised by the Local Government Association (LGA) as an example of how local authorities can work with firms to reduce waste and increase recycling.

UK businesses spend up to 4.5% of their annual turnover getting rid of their waste, but the Sorted scheme helps reduce their costs by collecting paper and cardboard directly from their premises.

Selby district council environment board chairman Chris Metcalfe said: “We’re obviously delighted that the success of the Sorted recycling scheme has been recognised by the LGA, which is the national body for all local authorities in England and Wales and we’ve been able to share our experiences here in Selby with authorities across the country.”

Representatives from Selby District Council recently gave a talk in London about the success of the scheme, so other local authorities could learn from the council’s good work.
