Bournemouth Council has been under the microscope for all the wrong reasons lately but today The Breaker has the exclusive story that Bournemouth is the best for recycling and waste.

Breaker’s other top stories include a story on Greenpeace, who are protesting about Co2 emissions from car giant Volkswagen. So if you see people dressed as Stormtroopers in the town centre on Sunday, don’t be alarmed. Do you back Greenpeace on this? Tell us what you think in our discussion.
