Cornwall Waste Action works with a range of organisations to promote the sustainable use of resources. Through community based initiatives and project activity they support reuse, composting, recycling and awareness of waste inefficiency and its effect on climate change.
The Neighbourhood Recycling Project is an exciting community waste initiative between Cornwall Waste Action and the Pengegon Area Collective which started in 2011, with the aim of raising local awareness about waste reduction, through a series of community based workshops.
Their message is the 3 R’s RECYCLE, REUSE, REDUCE from home composting to creating art from waste materials.
Cornwall Waste Action’s Community Project Worker, Jacqueline Merrick said:
It is really important that we all minimise our environmental impact through reducing what we consume and the amount of waste we create. However we can also all benefit financially from a more frugal lifestyle, through attending these workshops, we will provide local people with the opportunity to be greener, have fun and save money.
