New film aims to inspire more recycling in Stroud
9:01am Saturday 19th October 2013 in News
A SHORT film which shows residents how to recycle and what happens to their household waste after it is collected from their homes has been produced by Stroud District Council.
The 15 minute film is split into several sections and shows how plastics, glass and cans, put into wheelie-bins and recycling bags, make their way to a ‘materials recovery facility’ in Wolverhampton for processing.
It also shows how cardboard and paper from recycling boxes is transported to a company in Cheltenham where it is then separated and baled into cardboard and paper to be sent on to paper mills.
Councillor Simon Pickering, chair of Stroud District Council’s’ environment committee, said: “Recycling has shot up since we improved the service last year but we can do better.
“This simple video shows what happens to everything we recycle and provides a quick guide on what can and can’t be recycled.
“It should reassure cynics that our residents’ recycling efforts are extremely worthwhile and at the same time we want to thank and inspire committed recyclers for their efforts.”
