Volunteer Waste Champions

Worcestershire County Council are trying to recruit volunteer waste champions to work for Worcestershire County Council.

Emma Stuart ,Waste Prevention Project Manager at Worcestershire County Council says:

Do you enjoy talking to people and sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm? Are you a passionate composter or have some great recipes for using left over food?

If so would you like to become a Worcestershire County Council Waste Champion?

With Worcestershire residents throwing away a massive 260,000 tonnes of waste each year, there is an increasing need to reduce the amount of waste being produced.  And this is where you come in…..

The County Council would like to work with communities to encourage them to compost more, waste less food or even understand better what can and cannot be recycled.

If you can spare some time and would like to encourage others to reduce their waste please get in touch. You can advise on all aspects of waste including reuse, repair and recycling.  Or just one part; so if you are a keen gardener, you can become a Compost Champion.

The County Council also supports the national Love Food Hate Waste campaign so if food is your passion, what about learning how to run cookery demonstrations and classes to show people how to reduce their food waste and, more importantly, save money!

You do not have to have any specific experience as we will give you full training, all we ask for is enthusiasm and commitment!
