Changes for 2024

The Parish of St Saviour has proudly offered a comprehensive household recycling collection service since its initiation in October 2019. We also offer Glass Recycling and General Waste Collections.

Paper, cardboard, plastic bottles and household metal packaging are collected for recycling.

Glass Recycling is also collected separately once a month.

  • u003cspan data-contrast=u0022autou0022u003eIn our ongoing effort to promote responsible waste management, it is crucial to highlight the significance of recycling and waste reduction practices. These actions not only contribute to cost savings but also have a far-reaching positive impact on the environment. By adhering to the principles of reduce, reuse, and recycle, we collectively play a role in conserving valuable resources and minimizing our carbon footprint.u003c/spanu003eu003cspan data-ccp-props=u0022{u0026quot;201341983u0026quot;:0,u0026quot;335559739u0026quot;:0,u0026quot;335559740u0026quot;:240}u0022u003e u003c/spanu003ernrnu003cspan data-ccp-props=u0022{u0026quot;201341983u0026quot;:0,u0026quot;335559739u0026quot;:0,u0026quot;335559740u0026quot;:240}u0022u003e u003c/spanu003ernrnu003cspan data-contrast=u0022autou0022u003eRecycling is a key component of sustainable waste management. It involves the conversion of used materials into new products, which conserves energy, reduces water consumption, and helps preserve finite resources on a global scale. While recycling is undeniably important, an even more effective approach is to minimise waste generation from the outset. Each one of us can make a meaningful contribution through various means:u003c/spanu003eu003cspan data-ccp-props=u0022{u0026quot;201341983u0026quot;:0,u0026quot;335559739u0026quot;:0,u0026quot;335559740u0026quot;:240}u0022u003e u003c/spanu003ernrnu003cspan data-ccp-props=u0022{u0026quot;201341983u0026quot;:0,u0026quot;335559739u0026quot;:0,u0026quot;335559740u0026quot;:240}u0022u003e u003c/spanu003ernu003culu003ern tu003cliu003eu003cspan data-contrast=u0022autou0022u003eu003cstrongu003eSmart Purchasing:u003c/strongu003e Making informed and eco-conscious choices when shopping can significantly reduce waste.
