Monitoring for Zero Waste Project Enlists Volunteers
The Presteigne and Norton Zero Waste project is up and running smoothly, with very good community participation. There is now a three week long monitoring process just to evaluate exactly how people are doing with recycling, and the Project Supervisor says she would very much appreciate help for however much time people can spare. The project will pay 'earnings' to a chosen local organisation or community venture. If you are able to assist with this, please contact.
