Waste – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
The Climate Action Stokesley and Villages group held their first themed evening on Tuesday 19th November, 7:30 – 9:00 pm in The Globe, North Rd, Stokesley, TS9 5DH. Tracey Flint, Hambleton District Council’s recycling officer explained what happens to the waste in Hambleton and what plans there are for helping people to reduce waste.
The Climate Action Stokesley and Villages group are promoting ways to reduce, reuse and recycle in the local area.
Reduce waste through, for example:
- identifying shops that will allow customers to take their own containers to be filled
- promoting water bottle refilling
Reuse through, for example:
- identifying businesses or individuals who undertake repairs and maintenance of household items
- calling for the reinstatement of an area at the local recycling centre for items that can be repaired /reused
Recycle through, for example:
- publishing details of how and what to compost
- highlighting where different items can be recycled
- encouraging local councils to use recycled products
- supporting recycling at events such as Stokesley Show
