Waste Reduction Volunteers needed

Would you like to learn how to shave pounds off your shopping bill?

Cheshire East Council is hosting a training day to show people how to do just that — and become a Waste Reduction Volunteer (WRV) for the Council. 

Over a month the average family throws away £50 worth of food, as most of the waste that ends up in our black bin becomes dinner table scraps. 

The Council is now looking to recruit WVRs who can spread the word about the benefits of home composting and reducing household food waste. 

The Council would like to hear from people who want to take part in a day's training at St Peter's Church, Elworth, Sandbach on November 3rd. 

Volunteer Sally Hoare, from Wilmslow said: "Being a volunteer has lots of benefits and I've met some great, like-minded people. 

"I am passionate about doing my bit to help save the planet and enjoy talking about ways to reduce food waste at events like this throughout the year. I would definitely recommend it".

Volunteers will receive training, travel expenses and membership of the WRV reward scheme.

Anyone interested in becoming a WRV should visit www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/recycling  to sign up, or telephone the project coordinator on: 01270 686094.
