RECYCLING TALK AND 'HANDS ON' CRAFT EVENING
In June our recycling talk from mbc environmental services gave us all the facts, and we now understand that though most things can be recycled, a balance has to be struck between the environmental benefit and the cost involved. The Pick up lorries have two or three different compartments, so although it may appear that different types of rubbish are put in the same lorry, it is definitely split. (we were assured of this)
Following the talk, members used recycled items to make models of a lady or gentleman from a past age, to take home for their windowsill/grandchild/or just for themselves. Even those who were reluctant to start became enthusiastic by the end. We had a lot of fun, and all learned the benefits of double sided sellotape!
