Labour run Barrow-in-Furness was the worst council in the country for recycling rubbish, sending just 18.8 percent of rubbish collected to be recycled, reused or composted, way below the national average of 43 percent.

Labour’s Newham council was the second worst in the country, sending a paltry 20.3 percent of rubbish to be recycled.
