The HNZ public meeting on recycling on the 4th November was well attended. Presentations were given by Wendy Fail, Senior Waste Management Officer Northumberland County Council, and Nick Morphet, County Councillor for the Humshaugh Ward. Copies of their presentations below.
Key points were:
No household waste in Northumberland is sent to landfill or overseas.
Humshaugh Net Zero is considering how to promote recycling locally and reduce carbon emissions associated with recycling.
Our first Net Zero Café will be held on Saturday 30th October between 10 am and 12 noon at the Village Hall.
In addition to serving tea, coffee, juice and yummy cakes & tray bakes, we are offering you the opportunity to get involved in doing your bit for the environment in relation to single use plastics and environmental degradation.
At our café, you will be able to check out some of the Matthias Winter eco-products on sale for the home and you can also pick up pre-ordered refills of a selection of Matthias Winter’s home/personal, environment-friendly cleaning items listed on the order form.
To pre-order, complete the attached form (including your name), bring the form and your empty containers to the village shop by closing time on Wednesday 27 October, write your name and item on one of the sticky labels we have left in the shop (we’ll use the order form to get quantity & scent), stick the label on the appropriate containers and we’ll do the rest!
If you don’t have a suitable container, you can purchase appropriate glass bottles with alternative tops to a standard screw-top from Matthias Winter (see order form). In this case, just drop off your completed order form at the shop. Your refills will be available to collect from the Matthias Winter table at the café. Payment on collection.
Re-use and cut down on packaging!
