People taking their rubbish to the Hunters Lane tip in Rugby are getting more help sorting their materials.
And the county council, which runs the sites, believe it will save taxpayers a total of £1.5million each year.
A recent survey of recycling centres’ users highlighted that many would welcome help to sort materials at their local site.
The authority hopes the move will also divert up to 11,000 tonnes from landfill – saving council tax payers more than £1.5 million in disposal costs. Cllr Jeff Clarke said: “Staff will be on hand to look through any bags brought on site to help people to recycle more. The range of items that can be recycled has increased dramatically over the last couple of years including rags, shoes, and electrical items.”
