Recycling advice at community event

Liverpool is looking to boost the amount it recycles and a community event will be offering advice and guidance to residents how they can do that.

It is the latest in a series of events at the Friday Morning Café at St David’s Church, Childwall and will take place on Friday 4 March (10am to 12noon).

A number of organisations including Liverpool City Council, Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority, Bulky Bob’s, Create UK and Love Food Hate Waste will be on hand to offer tips on how to recycle more.

There will also be a small furniture giveaway, white goods for sale, plus lots more.

Local Councillor Jeremy Wolfson said:  “The council has a target of 55% for recycling waste not only because it is environmentally responsible to do so but the less we send to landfill the greater the financial benefits to council taxpayers.

“So, this event will give more information about recycling and encourage people to help make the city cleaner and greener.”

The Friday Morning Café at St David’s Church and its ‘first Friday of the month’ events were set up using Childwall Councillors Mayoral Neighbourhood Fund allocation.  It is supported by local Councillors Jeremy Wolfson, Frank Hont and Ruth Hirschfield.
