Harborough leads the way

I was pleased to see the BBC reporting that:

People living in the Leicestershire district of Harborough recycle half of all their waste.

Pleased and a little amused. When I was on Harborough District Council in the 1980s (I was only 14), I campaigned for and got the first bottle bank in Market Harborough. I was told by one officer that I risked bankrupting the council.

Things are still improving in Market Harborough. The latest news is that we are getting a Marks & Spencer food store.

But measure the amount of waste business doesn't recycle (if you can) and you'd get a truer picture of how little actually is recycled - and why Britain is still way behind most european countries
