July Meeting Report …..

For our July meeting we were helped by Kate Keays from Chichester District Council as to what we could and couldn’t recycle.  She explained how to determine what was plastic or not (scrunch test!) and also explained that the things did not have to be squeaky clean just rinsed out.  Small bottle lids, whether metal or plastic should not be recycled as the recycling machine at Ford cannot process them.  All the ‘stuff’ that is recycled is baled up and sold and we, as a District, pay £84.40 for every tonne of rubbish that has to go into landfill, so the mantra is REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE.

As we do not have a scheduled meeting in August for those of you who would like to meet up on the 3 August, we are having a taster boule evening at The Foresters, Kirdford.  We are meeting at about 6.20 to have a go and for those of you who just want to have a meal and a chat perhaps a little later.  Please let Mary know if you would like to play.

Happy summer.
