Families are invited to talk rubbish at a series of drop-in sessions about the borough’s new waste and recycling
scheme this month.
The meetings have been organised by Wokingham Borough Council for people to ask questions about the
initiative and find out more about its success.
The drop-in sessions will be at:
-Woodley Library, in Headley Road, on Saturday, September 8, between 10am and 2pm
-Lower Earley Library, in Chalfont Close, on Tuesday, September 11, 4pm-7pm
-Charvil Village Hall, in Park Lane, on Wednesday, September 12, 4pm-6.45pm
-Shinfield Parish Hall, in School Green, on Thursday, September 13,10am-2pm
-Finchampstead Library, at FBC Centre in Gorse Ride North, on Thursday, September 13, 4pm-7pm
-Civic Offices, in Shute End, Wokingham, on Friday, September 14, 10am-2pm
-Wokingham Library, in Denmark Street, on Saturday, September 15, 10am-2pm
Councillor Angus Ross, executive member for environment, said: “We are hoping to talk to as many residents as possible about the new
waste and recycling service introduced in April.
“We would like the opportunity to find out more about people’s experiences of the scheme so that we can make improvements for 2013/14.
“Residents will also have the chance to learn a bit more about what can and can’t be recycled.”
On August 21, the council launched a survey to find out what people think about the service.
The survey asks about the blue bin bags, the kerbside recycling scheme, including what can and can’t be
recycled, the recycling rewards scheme and the opt-in garden waste scheme.
