Sheffield, the greenest city in England, is home to over half a million people living in 227,000 households. We are working with Sheffield City Council to manage the rubbish created by the residents of the city. We empty bins, provide recycling services and generate electricity and heat from some of the rubbish that can’t be recycled. We also make sure that anything that can’t be recycled or used to generate power is disposed of safely. Since we started working together 10 years ago the city has increased its recycling rate from 4% to 30% and it only sends 13% of its rubbish to landfill.
