Recycling prize to help village
A Cornish village is to improve its recycling facilities using prize money from a recycling competition.

People in Sticker, near St Austell, won 10,000 after increasing the amount of rubbish they sorted to become the best in the Restormel district.

Villagers increased their recycling by almost 10kg (22lbs) per household in a three-month period.

The money will be used to improve the village car park, including providing more facilities for recycling.

The competition was held by the Recycle for Cornwall campaign

The 10kg recycling increase is the equivalent of nearly 200 tin cans per household, it said.
