During this bank holiday weekend, many of us will be taking advantage of the better weather to enjoy a family barbecue. The council is asking everyone to be mindful of the amount of waste generated and to recycle wherever possible, and advises people to dispose of ash from their barbecues by putting it in a bag before placing it in their refuse bin. 

Councillor Sarah Hands, Lead Member for Clean and Green Environment, said: “With warm weather expected over the holiday weekend, many of us will be planning picnics or barbecues with friends and family. We would ask you to limit the amount of waste as far as you can and recycle as much as possible. Better still, be kind to the environment – and your pocket – by using re-usable cups, plates and cutlery.   

“And, in the unlikely event that you have leftover food you cannot use later, don’t forget to put it in your food caddy to be recycled.”
