Whitehead residents cash in with plastic recycling trial

A recycling trial in Whitehead, County Antrim, is paying residents 20p for each used plastic bottle they place into their household recycling bins.

To take part, residents have to use a mobile phone app to scan special stickers which have been placed on 67,000 bottles in the town.

At 20p a time, the app's developer is picking up the bill for the trial.
