Leeds recycling scheme to be rolled out to more cities

More than 1.2 million coffee cups have been recycled in the first year of a trial scheme to cut waste in Leeds.

Brightly-coloured recycling bins were placed in the city centre in October 2018 to encourage people to recycle.

Before then the city's bins were not suitable for "on-the-go" waste.

The Leeds scheme cost £400,000 and was funded by major brands and retailers.
