Council’s new waste minimisation programme, Rethink Waste, is an open invitation for us all to see waste as an opportunity rather than a challenge.

Rethinking waste will help enable us all to live in a more circular economy, where our precious resources have more than one life and the rubbish dump is the last resort.

Rethink Waste is launching with our spring calendar of activities, starting with workshops on zero waste parenting, home composting and lots of other ways to keep your rubbish bins as empty as possible. 

Check out our programme here, and keep an eye out for regular updates on our Facebook page.
We’re always keen to hear how you rethink your waste, so look for our regular polls on You can also subscribe to our Rethink Waste newsletter to keep up to date with our news and tips on how to avoid waste, competitions and promotions.
