Dean Field Junior Wardens have got a message for flytippers and litter bugs everywhere – You Stink!
In just 30 minutes this team of young people collected six very smelly and very full large bags of discarded rubbish mostly made up of plastic and cans from the area surrounding their school.
“It feels good to be able to do something to make my community better but I just don’t understand why people can’t just find a bin, or take their rubbish home”, said Josh aged 10.
To follow on from the clean up the Junior Wardens will be visiting a local SUEZ Recycling and Recovery site to hear more about their vision for a society where there is no more waste.
Over the course of a year, Suez handle over 10 million tonnes of waste in the UK. They believe waste is a resource and have a goal to help create a circular economy in which nearly all waste materials are given a second life and reused, recycled or recovered for their energy content.
Waste left on the ground, especially plastic waste causes pollution, looks unsightly and the value from these recyclable materials is never recovered. For more information about Suez, visit the website here…
