HOW a further 180 tonnes a week of waste from St Albans will be recycled by 2010/11 will be revealed by the district council next Friday, January 11.
At the moment, 680 of the 1,000 tonnes of household waste collected every week goes to landfill - the rest is recycled.
The council want to reduce the landfill dumping to 500 tonnes by 2010/11.
Community workers are invited to the meeting on January 11 and another on January 24 when the council will explain the changes that need to be introduced to hit the target.
