PORTSMOUTH residents recycled more than 130 tonnes of materials between August 2013 and April 2014, raising £40,000 for charities.

Portsmouth City Council teamed up with European Recycling Company to collect materials in blue recycling banks.

The money made from selling textiles is shared with the council.

A variety of charities will benefit from the cash.
