Zero waste challenge
HOUSEHOLDS in Clevedon are being challenged to produce zero waste for a whole month.
Environmental group, Transition Clevedon has teamed up with North Somerset Council in the hope of encouraging people to reduce their non-recyclable waste.
Throughout October, those taking part in the challenge will be tasked with ensuring less than normal, or even nothing, is thrown away as rubbish, with only recyclable items being put out for collection.
The transition group hopes the challenge will highlight to the council how difficult it still is, despite the current kerbside collections, to not throw too much rubbish out.
Group member Paul Welcomme said: “Unnecessary waste is still costing each of us and the environment a huge amount. We can’t wait for others to take action. We have to do something ourselves to show we can make a difference.”
