Zero Waste Week is all about reducing waste and reusing resources. Check out what The Great Waste is doing to get everyone involved.
Zero Waste Week is back for an 11th year and is a great opportunity to think about ways you can reduce your waste at home and at work. Take a look at these inspiring stories to get some great ideas.
8 September 7:30pm to 9:30pm, be inspired by Britain’s first house made almost entirely of rubbish. Constructed by the University of Brighton, the house is built using thrown-away concrete blocks, timber, ply, vinyl banners, pieces of polystyrene, bicycle inner tubes and even old coffee grinds which were turned into a kitchen worktop. United Church, Jewry Street, Winchester, SO23 8RZ. More details
At Winchester Guildhall 1871 café, the chef will be using commonly waste foods to make delicious meals. Inspiring recipes and advice on how to make more from the food we buy will be available to take away. The Broadway, Winchester SO23 9GH. For recipes and ideas to download, have a look at our Leftover Lunch packs.
Winchester City Council is encouraging all businesses and organisations to roll up their sleeves for a “Corporate Clearout” by passing on old office items. Find a new home for the redundant stationary, filing cabinets, furniture and electrical items using Freecycle or Gumtree. Tell us what you have passed on and we will put you on The Great Waste Wall of Fame.
Getting something repaired helps reduce waste and is also amazingly satisfying. The Great Waste has a list of repairers from in and around Winchester Town. It covers a range of repair places including jewellery, computers, musical instruments and knife sharpening and it is available to download today
