Ideas discussed by the public at the Climate Emergency meeting on 7th October 2019:
How is recycling evaluated. How good is Faringdon and how can we make it better?
Can the Vale convey best practice?
Can we educate people to read the information and act on recycling ?( Share videos on media to show what to do)
Symbols are often not very visible, but Biffa advises that when in doubt put it in the recycling.
How can we get people to reduce, reuse, recycle. Can we have a repair shop?
Deposit on beverage containers.
Could we distribute hessian bags to new residents with recycling information- with support from the Vale.
