War on waste

RESIDENTS in Babergh are being urged to be “green” with this year’s Christmas waste.

Babergh District Council is calling for people to recycle their festive rubbish, including wrapping paper and cards, and monitor how much food they throw away.

A spokeswoman for the council said: “By recycling we hope to prevent the excess of black bin rubbish which ends up in landfill every year over the festive period.”
