Extra hours for recycling

City leaders have agreed to extend the opening hours at recycling centres across the Capital.
The new hours will mean the sites are open to the public for an extra 1000 hours a year.

Council chiefs claim the move could result in as much as a 30 per cent increase in on-site recycling and a three per cent increase in the overall recycling rate.

The date on which the new opening times will start will be announced once new staff to man the centres have been recruited.

Councillor Robert Aldridge, the city's environment leader, said, "We want to do everything we can to make it easier for people."
