As the weather starts to improve people will relish the opportunity to get out into the fresh air and start to get their gardens ready for the warmer weather. With the destruction caused by the recent storms you may be thinking about having a garden bonfire to burn waste material.
If you are thinking about having a bonfire the Parish Council would ask that you be aware of the effects your fire may have on your neighbours and if it will be polluting the atmosphere unnecessarily. You can read more about bonfires by visiting the Worcestershire Regulatory Services website.
Kate Stott, Education & Communications Officer for Severn Waste Services, joined the Parish Council at the last meeting to give a very informative presentation on recycling and what you can put in your recycling bin.
Severn Waste Services is the public face of municipal waste management in Worcestershire and Herefordshire, operating facilities for its sister company, Mercia Waste Management.
Kate explained what happens to the items that are currently recycled across the County and how education is a key factor in helping people to understand the importance of recycling. She explained what can happens to your recycled items and advised that if you can’t put something in your recycling bin you can usually dispose of it at the Household waste sites across the County.
