Test Valley Council Lagging behind on Recyling

April 2, 2021 4:27 PM

Latest Government figures show that the annual waste generated per person here reduced by less than the weight of 2 bags of sugar in 5 years.

recycleOnly 36.9% of the waste collected from homes in Test Valley is recycled or reused compared with an average of 47.6% for the South East as a whole.

Is it just coincidence that the top three councils for recycling in Hampshire are all controlled by Liberal Democrats?
HCC too needs a clear plan to invest in renewables to create green energy.

Liberal Democrats have the climate emergency at the heart of all of our policies. We will target zero emissions by 2035 - 15 years ahead of the current vague and unambitious plan.

We will rethink public transport, support greening homes, tackle air quality and demand a healthier Hampshire for all.

We need action - not excuses. We need ambition in Hampshire - not empty words. If we don't take action locally, it will literally cost us the Earth.
