Your future Solihull - Recycling


More and more people recycle every day. You’re probably already realising that our recycling bins are filling up faster than our general waste bins. By recycling you are helping to reduce your carbon footprint and the need to harvest raw materials. This results in energy being saved and less harmful greenhouse gases being emitted into the atmosphere. 

In Solihull, residents re-used and recycled 35,988 tonnes of household waste in 2020/21, an increase of 2,179 tonnes on the previous year. This fantastic effort resulted in an estimated 10,318 tonnes of carbon emissions being prevented by not landfilling or incinerating these materials.
