MLA Maurice Bradley, has encouraged the continued use of recycling across the Causeway Coast and Glens Council area.
The DUP man has praised Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council for increasing the levels of recycling across the Borough.
“Despite the challenges of Covid-19 restrictions and a slight rise in fly-tipping, Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has still managed to reduce the amount of waste to landfill through its successful recycling policies, ” said Bradley, a member of Stormont’s Environment Committee.
“These figures are down to the diligent work of households who continue to use their bins appropriately and think about the importance of our environment.
“A special thanks must also go to our schools who continue to drive the ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’ message to our young people. It is second nature to them now and that’s the way it should be.
“As we mark Recycle Week it is important that we continue our efforts in a bid to protect our environment and our wildlife.”
