Dover District Council is thanking residents for continuing to recycle, and reminding everyone to keep recycling as they continue to work together for the future.

This follows news from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) that residual household waste (not recycling) per household for Dover District residents in 17/18 dropped by a massive 31.2 kg per household from 16/17.

The figure for Dover District was down to 343.6 kg per household for 17/18. This is the second highest reduction in Kent, according to figures from the Kent Resource Partnership (KRP).

The percentage of household waste recycled in Dover District was 47.3% for 17/18.

This is an increase of 2.6% on the previous year and is the third highest increase in recycling rates in Kent, according to the figures from KRP.

Cllr Nicholas Kenton, DDC Cabinet Member for Environment, Waste and Health, said: “We are delighted to see our recycling rates continuing to climb. We would like to take this chance to thank residents for recycling, and we continue to work hard to encourage everyone to reduce, reuse and recycle.”
