Spring into action

Too busy to blog??

Well I must admit the blog feels a little neglected recently, sorry about that!
But with only 2 more views needed to hit the 3000 views mark, I think it's been ticking over nicely!

We've been very busy out and about with workshops and planning roadshows, including paper recycling with South Parade primary school. We showed them how energy intensive, and resource intensive the recycling process can be , especially for water! They made some fantastic posters about why it's important to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle and some lovely creative recycled paper.

There are going to be some changes happening to our recycling service, so residents please look out for a booklet coming through your doors in April with full details!

One of the big things will be that all residents are required to recycle, using the triple boxes. If residents don't have the boxes they should phone the Waste hotline on (01472) 325841. This will be in effect from 1st April 2012, so not far away!

It's our shared planet, and we all need to get into the habits of making less waste, reusing wherever possible, and recycling what we can, to save our resources for future generations.

  1. Sounds like you've been busy! I really like that you're taking the show on the road and teaching kids that even recycling is resource-intensive ... and in such a creative way! Brilliant!
