Recycling Champions Resources
Welcome to our recycling champion resources page. We aim to provide you with information and download resources which we hope will be useful to you in promoting waste minimisation, reuse and recycling in your community.
Where does The Council's Recycling Go?
You are welcome to download or copy material and images in this area for use in community events and publications such as village newsletters. As many of the images available remain under copyright, we would ask that you do not alter the images themselves.
Love Food Hate Waste
A recent waste composition analysis showed that Cheshire East domestic bins contained one-third food waste. WRAP research suggests the UK throw away 8.3 million tonnes of food and drink every year.
Our 2010 campaign focuses on Love Food Hate Waste, with the emphasis on buying smart, using leftovers and minimising the amount of food we throw away. As part of this campaign we have produced posters which can be downloaded below. Also visit the Love Food Hate Waste website for recipe ideas, facts and advice.
Cheshire Furniture Reuse Forum
The Cheshire Furniture Reuse projects collect unwanted good quality furniture and some electrical appliances you no longer need, to help local people in your community. The Forum has three projects within Cheshire East, all having a large number of hard working volunteers to help them deliver this service.
For more information about how the scheme works, and to watch a DVD of the Forum in action, visit the Cheshire Furniture Reuse Forum website.
