Staffordshire Moorlands recycling changes made

Changes are being made to the ways in which Staffordshire Moorlands residents carry out their recycling.

Instead of putting cardboard in with their garden and food waste, it will now go with plastic bottles, tubs and trays and glass.

The changes have been made after the Association for Organic Recycling tightened up its regulations to improve compost quality.

It said inks and other substances found on cardboard contaminated the waste.
