Cornwall Councils says:-
It costs approximately £1.99 to collect, transport and landfill a black bag of rubbish,
but only £0.41 to collect and recover a box or bag of recycling.

STIG says:-
Incentivise recycling via rewards ( i.e. lottery/community awards) & ensure residents are all made aware
of comparative costs for dealing with a bag of recycling versus a black bag of residuals.

Weekly food waste collections would yield a far higher rate of uncontaminated recyclables.
Recycling collections of all plastics & tetra packs would significantly reduce the amount of residual waste requiring collection & disposal.
