Warwickshire residents on rubbish diet for charity

Leamington Editorial 30th Jul, 2017   0

ECO-FRIENDLY residents in Warwickshire have helped towards a £650 donation to Parkinson’s UK.

It was raised by residents taking part in Warwickshire County Council’s Slim Your Bin campaign as part of a drive to encourage households to recycle more and throw away less.

Nearly 400 county homes have signed up to the campaign, which includes a training plan and ongoing feedback and guidance. Bin ‘dieters’ are rewarded with points for the steps they take to reduce waste.

Every year the district or borough in the county with the most points wins £650 for their favourite charity of choice, and top performing community, Warwick district chose Parkinson’s UK.

Sarah Wakeman, from Parkinson’s UK, said. “We’re so grateful to receive these donations and want to thank everyone who voted for us. It’s great that a recycling campaign can also promote community spirit and support local community projects.”
