Waste and Recycling

Council encourages all residents to consider how to minimise waste and reduce the impact on the environment and maintains the philosophy for minimising waste as ‘Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle’. The below links can provide further information on ways you can do this:


  • The Love Food Hate Waste campaign aims to raise awareness of the need to reduce food waste. The campaign shows that by doing some easy practical everyday things in the home we can all waste less food, which will ultimately benefit our purses and the environment.
