A Life Less Plastic
This time limited group looked at the effect that plastic has on our lives and the planet. It has now finished and some of what they found was described at the Monthly Meeting on 2nd July.

On Monday 25th March we visited the Kier depot in Winsford to hear about how kerbside recycling operates in Cheshire West & Chester. It is amazing how many different things can be recycled by the scheme, what you can put in your green box and where it goes to was most illuminating. For example, did you know that they recycle cardboard coffee cups! CWAC is in the top 15 authorities in England for recycling performance. A few photos of the visit can be found on this page.
On 13 May, the Life Less Plastic group went on a fact finding trip to Ash Commercial Waste Recycling facility in Wrexham, where we discovered just how much of the plastic waste gets burnt, rather than recycled. Photo in Links the right
