Recycling reduces costs

I live in Somerset.  So I happened across this report by the Somerset Waste Partnership.  It provides a detailed breakdown of SWP’s costs over a seven year period.  But of more interest is its analysis on how recycling contributes to lowering the cost of waste disposal.  They state “in 2019/20, every tonne of waste prevented through reduction or reuse saves Council Tax payers over £116.95 per tonne.”  And yet I have neighbours who do not recycle because they think “it’s a waste of time”.  😞
