Two community projects in Rochdale have a share of this year’s £70,000 Community Waste Fund to help the region reduce waste, re-use and recycle. It is hoped that the project will inspire positive change in communities to improve the environment and help residents save money.
Changing the recycling culture with the help of community champions, reducing the amount of food waste with practical activities and a paint re-use scheme are just some of the sustainable projects that secured funding.
Rochdale Residents are Being Encourage to Recycle and Re-use
Encouraging communities to re-use rather than discard paint, Rochdale Boroughwide Housing is concentrating on how they can support their residents to re-use more.
The project will collect unwanted, surplus paint for sale to tenants (individuals, families, community groups) and will help save on the energy consumption associated with paint manufacture. This service is coming soon so keep an eye on RBH’s website to find out when the shop will be opening.
Councillor Neil Swannick, Chairman of Greater Manchester Waste Disposal Authority, said: “This is the third year of the community waste fund and there is an interesting and diverse range of projects starting up. Through Involving and supporting communities to increase local recycling and reduce waste will help achieve the aim of zero waste to landfill.”
Recycling is a worldwide issue we must all become part of; disposing of goods doesn’t always have to be the last course of action. Why not consider storing your valuables? Make room in your house and clear out everything except what you only need every once in a while.
