For the first time ever, St Albans City & District Council which includes Harpenden and surrounding villages has equipped new properties with eco-friendly air source heat pumps – instead of gas boilers – to cut carbon emissions
Under the current Liberal Democrat administration, St Albans City & District Council which includes Harpenden and surrounding villages has exceeded its annual carbon savings target, according to a report presented at last week’s meeting of the Climate Advisory Group that was set up in 2019 to help tackle the climate emergency.
Our Lib-Dem controlled district council which includes Harpenden and surrounding villages achieved the best annual recycling rate in the whole of England last year.
This marks an important step in our council's priority to help tackle the climate emergency and improve the environment.
Newly-compiled figures show the rate for household waste recycling – as measured by weight – rose to 64.2% in 2020/21. The national average was 42.3%
