Hundreds Come To Recycling Roadshows This Autumn
A series of recycling roadshows recently came to the Cotswolds offering advice and information to residents as well as free recycling containers.
The ‘Recycling Container Giveaway Roadshows’ toured the region in late November and early December, taking trips to towns in the north and south of the District.
The roadshows were a joint initiative between Cotswold District Council and Gloucestershire County Council to emphasise the importance of recycling over the Christmas period and were staffed by officers from both authorities.
Over 650 Recycling boxes, kitchen caddies and cardboard sacks were handed out at the events and the officers also spoke with hundreds more residents wanting information on recycling in the district.
Cllr Mark Tufnell, Cotswold District Council’s Cabinet member for Environment and Communities, said:
"We offered advice and information on recycling along with black boxes, cardboard sacks and kitchen caddies to encourage residents to recycle as much as they can and we are delighted that so many residents took the opportunity to attend.
"Cotswold District is a beautiful part of the country and, together with our residents, we want to keep it that way. That is why we will keep emphasising the message that our residents should continue to recycle as much as possible in order to reduce the cost both to the environment and council tax-payers."
