SONGBIRDS NURSERY in Station Road, Preston will be getting two furry visitors on Thursday 29th March 2012, when the East Riding Council’s ‘green’ bears come to visit.

ERYC and ERYCA are the council’s Recycling and Composting messengers who can visit and bring advice and information on how to reduce waste.

Residents across the East Riding sent less of their waste to landfill in February by reducing what they put in their green bins. The recycling rate for February was 54 per cent, 11 per cent higher than in February 2011. To some extent this is due to the additional collections of glass, further plastics and Tetra Pak in the blue bins and food waste in the brown bins. However, better advice and information on waste reduction is playing a role in this as well

Schools and groups wanting talks and visits by the recycling officers should call (01482) 395586/5388 or email jonathan.crozier@eastriding.gov.uk

More information for Schools and Community Groups is available on the council’s waste reduction website.
