Thanks to the fantastic effort of Torbay residents, 42% of the waste collected was recycled last year. Sadly we are still sending over half of our waste to landfill, costing Torbay Council over £3 million, and causing harm to the environment.

By tackling our waste through reducing, reusing and recycling, we can all do our bit to help conserve natural resources, reduce the impacts of climate change and save money that can be put towards providing other vital services in Torbay.
