New laws to make sure more people recycle their rubbish got the go-ahead on Tuesday.
The government wants us to recycle more paper, cans, bottles and plastic after it turned out that we're falling behind the rest of Europe in going green.
Under the new rules, councils will have to make sure that 30% of our waste is recycled by the year 2010.
They will also have to set up services
to collect stuff that can be recycled
directly from people's houses.
