Local Authorities &
Community Groups Many Local Authorities and Community Groups are already putting good intentions into practice. Mid Devon Community Recycling Project has now been offering kerbside collection since 2004. Their experience has been extremely positive, finding it revenue neutral, and increasing participation in overall recycling. Norfolk County Council is another great example, and began a trial scheme in early 2006. Pleased with the results, the council expanded the scheme to include carton facilities to all of its Recycling Centres.
