Ewyas Harold recycling Saturdays
Community - Ewyas Harold for People and Planet Community Group monthly recycling events
The Ewyas Harold for People and Planet Group organise an event every other month where local residents can bring along items such as small electrical goods, black plastic, tin foil and other items that cannot go into the green recycling binsThe group ensures that the materials are properly recycled, with some items also supporting local charities. This scheme provides an essential service for those in the village who do not have cars.
"The machinery at EnviroSort sorting the Herefordshire Council recycling cannot recognise black plastic so large quantities of this have to be placed in ordinary waste and incinerated instead. Our events allow this to be recycled to provide new plastic, and also support local charities through tin foil and crisp packet collections." Sue Young, Ewyas Harold and District for People and Planet Group.
The group have also set up a permanent recycling point for inhalers at the doctor's surgery.
