'Recycle Your Rubbish' - the Malmesbury Community Area's A-Z recycling directory was launched on Saturday 14th December 2002. The FREE directory lists which materials can be recycled and re-used locally, along with details of where and how. 'Recycle Your Rubbish' is available through local shops and organisations in villages along with the Library and Tourist Information Centre in Malmesbury. The directory covers the areas of Malmesbury, Malmesbury St Paul Without, Charlton, Hankerton, Lea and Cleverton, Brinkworth, Dauntsey, Great Somerford, Little Somerford, Hullavington, Norton, Easton Grey, Sherston, Luckington, Sopworth, Brokenborough, Crudwell, Oaksey and Minety.
The directory not only includes information on local recycling points, but how to reduce and re-use rubbish with other 'green' tips. By producing the directory it is hoped that more people will reduce their rubbish, by recycling and re-using goods they would otherwise have thrown away. Entries in the directory include such items as computers, dog leads, flowerpots, mobile phones and wool amongst many others!
The production of the directory is the end of a 9-month project funded by a Community Innovator Millennium Award of £2311 and grant from North Wiltshire District Council of £500.
