Recycling message at Strood Market

Date: 07/04/2008           Category: Leisure

Shoppers can learn about recycling when they pick up a bargain at Strood Market this weekend. On Saturday, 12 April Medway Council's Waste Services Team will be at the market to promote recycling and tell residents how they can get involved. The team will have a stand at the market between 9am and 3pm. Officers will be giving advice to anyone wanting to start home composting or having difficulties with their compost as well as general information about dry recycling. Shoppers will also be able to watch a DVD and pick up leaflets about recycling and composting. The event is part of the council’s Think Blue not Black campaign which aims to encourage residents to send less rubbish to landfill by recycling more of their waste. Everyday items like fizzy drinks bottles, baked bean cans, junk mail and newspapers can all be recycled through the council’s blue box and bag doorstep collection, rather than being put in the black sacks and sent to landfill. All the usual market stalls will be there on Saturday. [ends]
