Recycling in Shropshire

'Shropshire now recycles,re-uses or composts 50.9% of our household waste.  Very small fluctuations over recent years.  As well as recycling,  a lot of rubbish is now diverted for energy production via Incineration.

 We have come a long way since 2002/3, when  96% of Shropshire's waste went to landfill.

All 5 of Shropshire's household recycling centres are open 9-5, 7 days per week. But not Christmas, Boxing or New Year's Day.
