New figures from between April and June this year have shown Portsmouth households are recycling three per cent more than during the same time in 2018, before the general waste wheelie bins were introduced.

They were also up seven per cent from the period between January to March in 2018 when only 21.8 per cent of waste in the city was recycled.
