National Zero Waste Week

Monday 2nd- Sunday 8th September

Did you know that this week is the 6th National "Zero Waste Week"?  It's the perfect time to think about what you can do to produce less waste each week.  

Throwing less away is one of the best ways to reduce your environmental impacts and can save money through reducing food wastage and helping to keep Council Tax low.

There's plenty of advice and information on how to reduce waste on (and via links from) our web site.  Top tips on reducing food waste include:

Over the last 10 years, local residents have reduced the amount of waste they produce by 26% despite the number of households increasing by over 7%.  And the Council stopped sending residual rubbish to landfill in 2011- It now gets helps to generate electricity for the National Grid at an energy-from-waste incinerator.  But it still costs the council over £14 million a year to dispose of and recycle all the waste local households still produce!

Less in the bin = more in your pocket!

    Effective food waste management is quite essential and it is the key to controlling the costs and keeping the ROI high. Every year a huge amount of food waste is generated which generally include organic waste, plastic, glass, metal, paper and cardboard. These wastes can be managed using a variety of waste receptacles and other outdoor containers. The waste management process starts with tracking the food waste streams, identifying and sorting the wastes and then formulating an effective waste management strategy.
