Two Northern Ireland companies have joined forces to promote the new Wheelie Box recycling system.

Bryson Recycling and Huhtamaki Lurgan (Ltd) have just hosted a 'Real Sustainability' seminar to educate councillors and government representatives on the benefits of the Wheelie Box collection system - three boxes stacked together on wheels.

The Wheelie Box was introduced to 850 households in Castlereagh in 2013 and 8,000 households in Newtownabbey in 2014. Huhtamaki's Jeff Kearon believes utilising the new Wheelie Box will deliver much higher quality material.

Eric Randall, director of Bryson Recycling, says councils could achieve recycling rates exceeding 50%.
