Warwickshire targets hayfever sufferers

Warwickshire County Council is working with Recycle Now to remind hayfever sufferers this summer that while used tissues cannot be added to paper recycling they can be added to home compost bins.

Councillor Martin Heatley said: “It is not just vegetable peelings and grass cuttings that can go in to your compost bin it is important to add drier organic materials such as shredded paper and card, sawdust, twigs and, of course, your old tissues, to get a really good quality compost.”

The council hopes to appeal to the UK’s estimated 12 million hayfever sufferers and is offering Warwickshire residents 330 litre compost bins for £6.
