The Sainsbury's Waste Less Save More Programme is being delivered across Perth and Kinross until May 2018.
Glenfarg & Kinross-shire Zero Waste Challenge
(including Glenfarg, Crook of Devon, Milnathort, Scotlandwell, Loch Leven and Kinross)
This challenge is running from Monday 16th April until Friday 25th May 2018. It's the 19th Zero Waste 'Fortnight' in Perth and Kinross and the aim is to reduce the amount of waste to landfill, with the main focus on reducing the amount of food waste generated over six weeks. There are lots of ways to reduce avoidable food waste. Unavoidable food waste can be recycled (without a garden waste permit) in the kerbside brown bin or composted at home so that it doesn't go to landfill. The amount of general waste and recycling generated in Glenfarg and Kinross-shire will be monitored. For every tonne of increased recycling and for every tonne of decreased general waste, Perth & Kinross Council will award the money saved on disposal costs back to the local community.
The following activities will be taking place as part of the Glenfarg & Kinross-shire Zero Waste Challenge:
