Following feedback from local businesses, Fenland has extended its very successful domestic recycling service to commercial customers. Businesses across Fenland are now able to recycle all of the same products in their blue bins, as local household customers.
Businesses have been able to recycle paper and card for three years but now the council can broaden the range of materials it can collect offer for collection. This is a great opportunity to further reduce the amount of rubbish sent to landfill and help businesses comply with legislation.
Household customers have a great record of recycling, 51% of household and compostable waste is recycled, and the enhanced commercial recycling service will continue to build on this success rate.
