This year, National Recycle Week organised by WRAP, is promoting ‘recycling the unusual suspects’, which aims to encourage people to recycle those items that often get forgotten such as aerosol cans, foil trays, beauty cream jars and toilet roll tubes.

Councillor Elsey, Cabinet Member for waste services and street scene at Peterborough City Council, said: “Recycling is already making a big difference thanks to the dedication of Peterborough residents, but it remains a priority in saving the environment and money.”
