THE COUNCIL has revealed how much it costs to collect and dispose of waste per household in Barnsley.

A grey bin costs £54.37 per household every time a bin is collected and its contents disposed of. Green and brown recycling bins cost £4.04 and £3.65. A blue bin costs £1.65. 

The cost is affected by how much homeowners recycle.

The total waste collected from residents last year was 81,000 tonnes, which the council says demonstrates the need to recycle.
