Russell Clark, waste and recycling officer for Uttlesford District Council, spoke about recycling issues in Uttlesford at the August meeting. Following the press coverage on wheelie bins, many of the WI members were keen to put Mr Clark through his paces - a feat he managed admirably. He explained that last year alone, Uttlesford produced 27,000 tonnes of waste. Of this waste, 67 per cent could have been recycled. Uttlesford has maintained its 23 per cent recycling rate for the last two to three years, but government targets keep rising and Uttlesford is now falling behind. The next meeting will be on Thursday, September 7 at Abbey Lane United Reform Church at 7.45pm. For more details call Stephanie on 01799 522826.
