Mayo County Council are hosting an event in Tescos Claremorris for National Food Waste Recycling Week today.
Now in its second year, the National Food Waste Recycling Week runs from the 5th until the 11th June. This campaign, managed by MyWaste.ie will provide practical advice, with easy to follow hints and tips to encourage everyone to recycle more of their food waste.
The event got underway at 11am this morning and will run until 3pm.
The public are encouraged to call in to collect their free food waste caddy and information pack.
This year’s campaign aims to ensure that people understand that food waste needs to be fully separated from all packaging such as plastic or other containers to prevent contamination at the compost and anaerobic digestion facilities leading to higher quality recycling.
