Llanfair Caereinion is top of the pops when it comes to recycling, while Welshpool is at the foot of the local league.
 
The town recycled an average of 6.5kg per household per collection during the second quarter of this year, a whopping half-a-kilo more than Montgomery in second spot. Forden finished narrowly behind in third.
 
But Welshpool didn’t fair well at all in the chart published by Cae Post, the charity and social enterprise which organises kerb side collections to raise funds for training disabled or disadvantaged people.
 
Welshpool Gungrog ward finished last on 3.1kg with Welshpool Castle ward fairing only slightly better in second to bottom with 4.2kg.
 
Meanwhile, residents of Guilsfield, who finished sixth in the table, can squeeze more into the red bins from Friday onwards. Cae Post used the local girl guides group to inform residents that they can now recycle plastic containers and trays along with ice cream tubs, food wrap and butter tubs. If successful, other towns and villages will follow suit.
 
“Residents can request another red box or one of our new recycling sacks if their current red box regularly becomes too full,” said a spokesperson.
