Ballymena REcycle

In Ballymena recycling rates continue to increase and in 2011/12 we recycled 38.3% of all our waste.
This is a great achievement and we thank everyone who has been recycling regularly.
Waste disposal cost the Council and ratepayers a lot of money. The cost of disposing of waste in landfill has risen to £84 per ton, including landfill tax of £72 per tonne, so dumping thousands of tonnes of waste in landfill is becoming very expensive. If we recycled more we wouldn't need to send so much to landfill, which would save us all money.
In 2011/12 Ballymena Borough Council area produced 31926 tonnes and landfilled 19704 tonnes of waste. The amount of waste which can be sent to landfill is decreasing every year.
We also have recycling targets set down by the government to divert waste going to landfill. By 2015 our target is to recycle 40% of our waste and by 2020 that figure rises to 60%.
