Latest statistics for St Germans is we are only recycling 28.81% of our waste. 22% of whats put in the weekly black bin bags is actually recyclable at the kerbside with 43% being genuine waste. In light of the Climate Crisis, can we try to do more to recycle. If you need help with what can be recycled use Cornwall Councils A-Z look up what can be recycled (search by item)
