Chance for villagers to learn about composting

Posted on April 19 2008 at 11:01:17

Bromsgrove District Council’s Waste Stop Shops, designed to help local residents get to grips with the idea of recycling their refuse, have proved so popular that they are to continue, taking on a special theme each month.

The next event takes place on Saturday May 17 at the new Alvechurch Library, hosted by Rachel Kennett, the Council’s Waste Policy and Promotions Officer.

Between 10am and 4pm, residents will have the opportunity to discuss composting and other waste concerns with Rachel, and there will also be a composting display.

“I will be on hand to discuss issues on a one-to-one basis with anyone about their refuse and recycling,” Rachel said.

She added: “Composting is an ideal way of getting rid of green garden waste and some kitchen scraps including vegetable and fruit peelings, tea bags, cardboard and egg shells.”

Leaflets offering advice on ways to reduce, reuse and recycle will also be available at the library, based at the new schools site on Birmingham Road.
