Waste and Recycling Events
Community Reassurance Event
11am – 2pm
An event to help residents in North Hertfordshire recycle waste electrical and electronic equipment will take place on Saturday 24th January 2015 at Woodside Car Park, Hitchin, from 9am to 2pm.
Textiles, clothes and shoes can also be taken to this event, which will be taken for either re-use or recycling to NHDC’s textile contractor C-T-R.
Patio table takes first prize in ‘Be resourceful’ competition
Chris Lee from Royston was presented with ten free swimming vouchers for Royston Leisure Centre after winning first prize in the ‘Waste Less Live More’ Be Resourceful Challenge which took place from 22-28 September. Mr Lee’s winning entry was a patio table made entirely from recycled builders’ pallets.
Rachel Taylor from Letchworth and Mrs Oram from Baldock were also sent prizes of free swims at Hitchin Swim Centre and North Herts Leisure Centre respectively. Their ideas on how to be more resourceful in everyday life included, ‘taking a cup for morning coffee on the train rather than buying and using a disposable cup’, and for ‘children to take showers rather than baths.’
All the competition prizes were kindly donated by NHDC’s leisure contractor, Stevenage Leisure Limited.
