Council's new campaign on recycling
A new campaign aims to boost recycling across the home
A report by Mike Davies - the man that gets everywhere there's news
The campaign was held in Neath Thursday 10th April: at the town Square, 10am – 4pm., one of the several venues we mentioned last week.
When it comes to recycling, most of us start in the kitchen, but then it ends in the kitchen too. Recycling is often undertaken by one member of the household and in one room only. Yet, everyone creates waste and all over the house - downstairs and upstairs.
A new campaign launched by Neath Port Talbot Council aims to raise awareness of the recyclable waste created in every room of the home.
You can recycle all kinds of everyday items in every room of your house. From toothpaste boxes and toilet roll tubes, shampoo and shower gel bottles, perfume and medicine bottles, through to bottle tops, receipts and envelopes, you can recycle in every room of your home.
As part of the campaign, Neath Port Talbot Council organised several events across the county borough for local residents to raise awareness of the types of waste created around the home that you can recycle
Residents will be encouraged to sign a pledge to recycle in every room of the home and can also pick up a free goodie bag as well as play the new “are you a superhero recycler quiz”.
Leader of Neath Port Talbot Council, Ali Thomas said:
“We are committed to increasing recycling rates in the county borough and the Full House campaign will help us to achieve this by aiming to raise awareness of the recyclable waste that’s created all around the house. We all create waste across our homes, but some of this isn’t recycled. Pick up a Full House leaflet and start today by taking a fresh look at the items you can recycle in every room of your home”.
The campaign has been funded by Waste Awareness Wales and will be supported by an on line interactive house, to be launched in May.
