Bournemouth urges new year's resolutions

After recently launching a comprehensive kerbside recycling scheme, Bournemouth Borough Council (BBC) has urged its residents to make a new years resolution.

BBC recycling manager Emma Sadiwskyj-Frewer said: By recycling at the kerbside, residents are not only helping the council to meet strict recycling targets but actually improving the environment on a local, national and global scale.

Even the smallest of actions can help. It might be that your resolution is to make sure you recycle all the newspapers and magazines that you read, or all the cans that you use. It might be to make the most of the recycling facilities across the borough. Or you might want to make an even bigger commitment and adopt a greener lifestyle altogether.

The kerbside scheme was fully implemented in September 2006 and the council has now published a list of suggestions for new years resolutions.

These include making a concerted effort to recycle one or more of paper, cardboard, cans, plastic bottles and glass.

It also suggests composting at home, buying recycled products, donating old clothes and furniture to charity, using washable nappies and using reusable shopping bags.
