Taking the pressure of finances while boosting recycling

Taking the pressure off finances, while boosting recycling rates.

Since 2010, local authority spending has been reduced by 20%. Clearly, with austerity measures in place, it is crucial that public sector organisations reduce costs, deliver value for money and continue to provide the wide range of services and facilities people have come to expect, while improving recycling rates and reducing their carbon footprint.
