From this page you'll find lots of information and fun facts about reducing, reusing and recycling in North West Leicestershire.
From ordering new or replacement recycling and waste containers to discovering our commercial waste services, have a look around and feel free to contact us with any questions or queries.
Thanks to your hard work, our recycling rate increased in 2019/20 to 46.3% - which is above the national average! This helps keep your council tax down by earning us around 500,000 pounds a year. Our Recycle more plan is packed with actions to help us to increase our recycling rate to 50 percent by 2023.
We have different containers for different materials to make sure the quality of what we collect is always the best - so we can get the best price for it.
All of our material goes to reprocessors in the UK and EU, so there is less travelling for the materials before they are recycled - saving both CO2 emissions and money. Find out what happens to your recycling.
