SIDMOUTH and Ottery residents have been urged to ‘love Easter, hate waste’ as part of a new campaign.
Devon County Council (DCC) has issued tips on how householders can go the ‘egg-stra’ mile with recycling during and after this weekend.
An astounding 80 million chocolate eggs will be sold in the UK this Easter and, traditionally, around a third of all property owners will plan DIY improvements to their homes.
As a result, driving forces behind DCC’s ‘Love Easter, Hate Waste’ scheme have compiled a range of easy to follow ideas for chocolate lovers and DIY enthusiasts alike - all of which will help to tackle the many thousands of tonnes of packaging and home improvement waste that will be generated over the next few weeks.

“Easter is a great time for indulging and celebrating with friends and family, but it often comes at a cost to our pockets and the environment,” said Councillor Roger Croad, DCC cabinet member for environmental services.
“Hopefully our Easter-themed advice will give people plenty of food for thought about how they can help to cut down on some of the 300,000 tonnes of rubbish that we throw away in Devon each year.”
