Jenny Jam Jar causes a stir in Surrey

A glass recycling mascot has caused a stir in Surrey, as it took to the road to spread the word on recycling, in the first of a series of many recycling roadshows. Hundreds of visitors descended on Redhill and joined in the fun at Reigate & Banstead Borough Councils recycling roadshow that used its new recycling exhibition trailier. Officers from the councils neighbourhood services team were on hand to answer questions and give advice about recycling. The glass recycling mascot Jenny Jam Jar gave away balloons and recycling goody bags to passers by, while children enjoyed playing an environmentally-themed giant snakes and ladders game. The new exhibition trailer features displays about recycling and reuse, multimedia facilities to show DVDs and solar-powered lighting, in line with the councils energy conservation programme. Severnside, the paper mill the council uses to recycle all the paper it collects from residents black boxes and recycling bring sites, sponsored the trailer. Councillor Julian Ellacott said: The Redhill roadshow was very popular with visitors to the town centre, with over 500 people stopping for information, recycling advice or to take part in the games and quizzes. I would encourage residents to come along to their local roadshow to get their recycling questions answered and join in the fun. Image:A young visitor to the roadshow meets Jenny Jam Jar
