Waste Awareness Wales wants Bank Holiday recycling

With the bank holiday weekend upon us, Waste Awareness Wales (WAW) - established to promote waste reduction, reuse and recycling in the community - is reminding people to recycle the extra waste they produce over the summer months.

WAW wants to remind people in Wales that all the plastic drink bottles and cans that are not recycled from summer picnics and barbecues contribute to the 4 million tonnes of rubbish that goes to landfill in Wales each year.

WAW chairman and councillor Richard Parry Hughes said: "Make sure you rinse and recycle as much of your rubbish as possible. If there are no recycling facilities nearby, take your waste home and recycle it with your other rubbish. Better still, save money by packaging your picnics in reusable tupperware and take homemade drinks in plastic beakers, to reduce waste all together."
