Lichfield residents have been getting tips from experts in reducing, reusing and recycling.

The experts were on hand at the Market Square in Lichfield City to answer residents’ recycling questions on October 1.

The event was part of Lichfield District Council’s recycling road show that has answering questions about the new blue bin recycling service.

Chris Cole, Recycling & Street Scene Development Officer, said:

“It was a busy day and everyone we talked to was keen to find out how they can recycle more. We had lots of positive feedback about our new blue bin recycling service, which is in the process of being rolled out across the district.”

Anne Nagle, from Wrap’s Love Food, Hate Waste campaign, was also there promoting reusing leftovers to cut the amount of food that is wasted each year.

She said:

“Recycling food waste is a definite improvement on sending it to landfill. However, it would be far better to make sure you only buy food you know you are going to eat, or to reuse any leftovers. This is why we’re promoting fantastic recipes, created by top chefs, for all those leftovers that you don’t know what to do with. But remember, if you do throw away food scraps, including bones, vegetable peel or out of date food and leftovers, put them in your brown bin so they can be transformed into compost.”
