Repair or adapt

The best environmental choice is to repair, restore or adapt a product you already have. You may need professional help but it could still be cheaper than something new.

Brixworth HWRC wins award

We are pleased to announce the winner of Northamptonshire County Council's quarterly award for the best performing Household Waste Recycling Centre. Brixworth HWRC has exceeded nine other sites in the county in it's very impressive 82% waste recycled. The staff at the site on Scaldwell Rd are to be congratulated on their high diversion from landfill. The recycling figure of 82% constitutes a increase of 6% over the last year.

The award was presented by Councillor Ben Smith, cabinet member for the environment at Northamptonshire County Council, and Enterprise Managed Services Contract Manager, Chris Smiles.

Councillor Smith said: “Reducing the amount of waste that goes to landfill is a key priority for Northamptonshire County Council and should be a priority for every county resident as well. Our recycling centres have an important role to play in this and this award recognises the efforts being made by staff and the public in ensuring as much rubbish as possible is either reused or recycled.”
