Waste

“Zero waste” is concerned with reducing waste of all kinds and at all stages in the production process.  It is an integral part of a shift towards a “circular economy” in which overall consumption is reduced, products are designed to be re-used or recycled and nothing ends up in landfill.

We need to be recycling 50% of our waste so it is important that we strive to put the right waste in the right bin. Bradford Council has put together the attached to help us do this:

If you would like a sticker to put on your recycling bin to remind you of what goes where please email aeg@addingham.info with your address and we’ll do the rest!

The Group presented its findings on Waste to the February 2020 meeting of the Addingham Civic Society. The team would be delighted to share its findings with other groups in the village. Click below to see the slides.
