Thank you for recycling! We give sincere thanks to the recycling efforts of Bury residents. Recycling trends are on the rise, which is great news as when you recycle:

  • we spend less on waste disposal operations
  • we receive more money for the recycling you place in your recycling bins
  • you help save money that protects other public services.

The table below shows the recycling figures, as percentages, per month over recent years.
