Have a happy, waste-free EasterMarch 30, 2012
In many households, Easter can be a time when extra waste is created. Large meals with family and friends, time spent in the garden, DIY jobs tackled and craft activities undertaken to keep children amused, not to mention packaging associated with chocolate Easter eggs.
Across Somerset, cardboard boxes and aluminium foil from Easter eggs can be recycled at the kerbside. Please flatten the boxes and scrunch together the foil and bag it separately from your food and drinks cans.
One way to cut down on Easter waste is to make your own chocolate Easter eggs or to decorate chicken eggs. If you have any great hints and tips on ways you reduce your waste, craft ideas, left over recipes or reuse suggestions we would love to hear from you and feature your suggestions on our website. Please email your ideas to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Recycling sites will be open on usual days over Easter to take bulky items and up to 30 materials for recycling. If you have been tackling DIY jobs, please remember that there are charges starting at £2.90 across all sites for disposal of construction and demolition materials such as rubble and concrete including sinks, tiles and toilets made from ceramics or porcelain.
