Recycling rates in Aberdeen have increased, despite an overall fall in Scotland.
Official Sepa figures have shown that Aberdeen recycled 47% of household waste in 2018, compared to 44% in 2017.
The national recycling rate for household waste in Scotland is 45%.
An Aberdeen City Council spokeswoman said: “Our residents have been doing a fantastic job of continuing to increase the amount we recycle and we’d want to encourage them to do more as there is still room for further improvement.
“Well done to our residents for helping to increase recycling numbers and we hope everyone will do even more to keep the figures rising every year.”
Recycle Week is running until Sunday and households are being encouraged to recycle their food waste.
When sent to landfill, food waste releases a dangerous greenhouse gas called methane which is more potent than carbon dioxide in the short term.
