RECYCLING AWARDS: East Devon District Council (EDDC) made the final of this year’s prestigious Plant and Waste Recycling Awards.
The council was a finalist in a category which recognises the local authority or regional partnership that has addressed the food waste problem and provided residents with information and equipment that has helped reduce the amount of food waste sent to landfill.
An EDDC spokesman said: “In the last financial year, residents placed 6,082 tonnes of food waste out for collection, which represents about 25 per cent of the amount of waste which was sent to landfill before the scheme was introduced.”
COMMON: Grazing cattle will soon return to East Devon’s pebblebed heaths including Colaton Raleigh Common, in special fenced off areas, in a bid to stop the area from turning into forest and to boost plant and wildlife.
