Recycling IS worth the effort
IT'S official – recycling does pay!
One million pounds is a decent return for the responsible efforts of many in our city who recycle their waste.
Swansea Council, having recycled nearly 6,000 tonnes of glass, over 7,500 tonnes of paper, and over 1,100 tonnes of scrap metal and aluminium cans during 2012/13, has every reason to feel proud.
Of course, it is true that recycling isn't universally supported, and raises the question of how much more money Swansea could make if everyone did their bit.
It should also serve as a lesson to those who continue to throw their rubbish onto our streets – and incur a £50 fine.
Let's work together – it's clearly worth it.
