This week is 'Watch Your Waste' week - an annual event to challenge residents to think about reducing the amount of rubbish they throw away. It's a chance for every local resident to work together to contribute to a more sustainable Hackney.
Participants will be entered into a prize draw to win one of 43 organic vegetable boxes from Growing Communities.
There are a number of events taking place this week:
- You can download a 'Challenger's Pack' from this page, full of top tips to reduce your waste
- You can reduce the amount of unwanted mail you receive. Call 020 8356 6688 or pick up a pack from 2 Hillman Street, E8
- Food Rescue Pack Give Away (until 23rd October). Packs contain fridge thermometers, bag clips, spaghetti measurers, tea towels and more. Complete an online quiz or pick one up from reception at 2 Hillman Street, E8.
