Graham Stuart, the Member of Parliament for Beverley and Holderness, is encouraging people to get involved with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s upcoming recycling events.
Council recycling officers will highlight the need to prevent waste, and increase the use of the blue and brown bins at a series of events in the coming weeks.
Graham said, “Recycling rates have been rising steadily in the East Riding, which is great news for the environment. Sending less waste to landfill means a saving for the public purse, as the council has to spend a huge amount on landfill tax each year.
“Hopefully these events will help reinforce the message about the importance of recycling, and our rate will continue to rise.”
For more information please call the Council’s recycling team on (01482) 395586.
