Come and talk to the Council at the Woolsery & District Agricultural Show

Woolsery Show 2016 2

Officers and Councillors from Torridge District Council (pictured in 2016) will once again be attending the Woolsery & District Agricultural Show to meet with the public, with a focus on Recycling and reducing waste that ends up in Landfill. The Council is currently planning to increase the range of plastic items that can be recycled at the kerbside and people will be able to come along and find out more about these plans. There will be lots of other information available such as how to compost more effectively, and ideas to generally help to improve our environment by producing less waste that ends up in landfill.

After last years successful initiative, an officer from the Councils Planning Team will also once again be on hand to answer general queries and give advice relating to developments and the planning application process. We also want to hear people's views on other Council Services and information from our other services will be available for people to take away and read.

Councillor Mervyn Langmead - Lead Member for Waste and Recycling said:

"The Council continues to welcome views from our residents and visitors, and this is an opportunity for people to come along and discuss things with representatives from the Council. People will be able to find out more about what materials they can recycle, which might not be so well known to them, or which we plan to add in the near future. But the show isn't just about recycling. We also want to use these events to connect with our customers and answer other queries they might have and this time around we again have a representative from the Planning Service to answer your questions. Apart from that, Woolsery Show provides a fun, fascinating, and educational day out for all the family. We look forward to seeing many people at the event"
