ROYSTON resident has become the 2000th person to register for a recycling scheme.
Graeme Dabnor has joined the Royston Freecycle group, which helps people re-use unwanted items.
To mark the milestone, Dermot Byrne, co-founder of Royston Freecycle Group presented a trophy, donated by a freecycle member in Meldreth, to Mr Dabnor, who was "delighted" to accept the award:
He said: "I've been a keen recycler of cans, bottles and paper for a number of years.
