GOING green has never been simpler as a superstore launches a high-tech recycling machine for customers.

Baldock's Tesco Extra is officially opening the machine for use tomorrow (Friday) at 11am as pupils from St John's Primary School cut the ribbon.

The machine gobbles up rubbish and uses space-age technology to automatically sort plastic, metal and glass at a rate of 80 pieces per minute. It also accepts paper, cardboard and carrier bags.

The Baldock superstore is one of only 100 across the UK chosen to get the machines.

Tesco hope that the special station will double the amount of recycling at the store.
