Recycling and Litter Pickers Page

Following our Litter Picking event on 25th March and our visit to Greatmoor Energy from Waste Site near Aylesbury on the 25th October, it is apparent that a significant numbers of Residents are interested in this important subject to protect our local environment and contribute positively to a significant Global Issue.

The Chiltern/South Bucks/Wycombe DCs Joint waste Team say ‘thank you for your efforts litter picking, its lovely to hear when residents get involved and are dedicated to making a difference’.

Several of our residents attending the Greatmoor visit were expecting to hear more about Recycling.  Click here for a video of the Rochester Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) run by Viridor.  The video is a good example of the process that is undertaken at an MRF but a bit confusing because the kerbside collections vary (some make separate paper collections and others combine them with other recyclables in pink sacks).  The video shows allot of plastic bags in the pink sacks.  For our kerbside collections plastic bags go in the grey bins for Greatmoor EfW.

With respect to litter picking, please see the most extraordinary litter pick so far, found in a pile at the base of a tree!!
