THE people of Thame recycle more rubbish than almost any other area in the entire country.

About 70 per cent of all rubbish is now recycled in the town, which is significantly higher than the average for Oxfordshire.

It is estimated that 53 per cent of the county’s rubbish is recycled, which puts Oxfordshire among the leading counties.

Co-ordinator for Oxfordshire Waste Partnership, Wayne Lewis said: “These are excellent achievements, not only are we recycling so much in Oxfordshire, we’re performing well above the average.

“The public have really embraced their new recycling schemes over the past two years helping to put Oxfordshire firmly on the recycling map.”

All food and garden waste is processed within the county and it feeds green electricity to the national grid.
