Paul and his young family are taking on the new trial with gusto! He says he was sceptical about the change before it started.

He said:

I really didn't know how we were going to cope. I’ve got two young girls and we throw away far too much.

However, Paul was pleasantly surprised.

As we can recycle so much more which is collected every week, the amount we throw away in our waste bin has reduced dramatically.

It’s unbelievable really. I never thought it would work, but it does.

He says that the weekly recycling collection which now includes cardboard and plastic as part of the trial, has made a real difference.

It's made us think more carefully about the rubbish we throw away and how we can recycle more. My girls are far more aware.
