Thomas fans help with waste questionnaire

Jute bags were an unexpected gift for visiters to the Thomas the Tank Engine day at Bodmin and Wenford railway on August 2. The Mayor of Camelford Brian Lush, dressed as Sir Topham Hat (aka the Fat Controller) and Cornwall County Council officers handed out jute shopping bags to anyone who completed a questionnaire about waste recycling. Council waste management officer Richard Bower said: We always try to attend where we know that the public will pitch up in good numbers, so we were pleased to be invited to distribute jute bags in return for the completion of a simple waste awareness questionnaire. We spoke to a fantastic amount of interested people from Cornwall and a good number of holidaymakers who were keen to see how advanced we are in Cornwall in terms of recycling and waste avoidance provision. Council executive member for environment and heritage Adam Paynter added: This was a great way for us to ensure that people living in Cornwall know how hard were working to make sure that recycling in the county is effective and well-managed.
