Waste Reduction Project seeks volunteers


Sustainable Ledbury
 is delighted to announce an exciting new collaboration with Ledbury Town Council and Garden Organic to help reduce the region's waste. The new campaign is looking to recruit volunteers from Ledbury and its surrounding area with a passion for reducing food waste, a love of composting and a determination to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as possible to share their skills and knowledge with others.

Volunteers will be provided with free training and resources on food waste reduction, composting and recycling in particular, but will also be made aware of other sustainable waste methods, such as Repair Cafes and real nappies.

 Volunteers do not need to have had any prior experience of waste or public engagement and only need to commit to a minimum of 30 hours of volunteering over the year. The only requirements are that individuals live in, or near, Ledbury, are comfortable talking to people, and are passionate about supporting their community to reduce the impact that poorly disposed waste has on our environment. 

If you have an interest in reducing, reusing, recycling and composting, and enjoy sharing your knowledge with others, this is the volunteering opportunity for you! If you would like to know more about volunteering for this campaign, please contact Sarah Blenkinsop by email at sustainableledbury@gmail.com or, alternatively, you can send your details in a sealed envelope addressed to Sustainable Ledbury to the Ledbury Town Council office on Church Street.
