A festive reduce, reuse, recycle roadshow will be visiting venues across the Island over the next few weeks.

The tour of supermarkets, libraries and town centres is aimed at encouraging recycling and reducing waste produced over the festive period.

“The IW Council, in partnership with Amey, are hoping residents can find some useful tips on how to reduce Christmas waste and find out what typical Christmas trimmings can and can’t be recycled.

The first event begins on 13 November and the tour takes in many of the Island’s main supermarkets including Tesco, ASDA, Morrisons and Iceland and local libraries. Town centres in Newport and Ryde will also be visited.

Visitors can pick up a handy leaflet with all the information inside or can download a poster at http://www.iwight.com/waste .

The tour will also provide information on how to reduce food waste, such as buying loose vegetables, using up leftovers and avoiding unnecessary food packaging; as well as helpful reminders on what goes where in recycling and waste.
