Council freebies for festive food recycling

With Christmas feasting over the festive period nearly upon us, Lewes District Council is offering residents FREE liners and food caddies for the yuletide leftovers.

Every bin in Lewes district contains an average of 30% food waste, the vast majority of which could have been recycled. Nearly 5,000 households in the district already take advantage of the council’s free weekly food waste collection service.

Councillor Paul Franklin, Cabinet Member for Waste and Recycling, said:

“Since we introduced the new waste and recycling service, we’ve seen a fantastic increase in the volume of recycling. I’m delighted with the way residents have embraced the new user-friendly system and our planning for more recycling success won’t stop.

“We want your food waste now. During the coming weeks there will inevitably be more food waste than at any other time of the year and our offer of a free roll of compostable food waste liners will help ensure it is recycled.”

All food waste collected is taken to a local facility where it is turned into a top-quality soil conditioner, which can then be used by local farmers and gardeners to grow more food.

Consultation on proposed Telscombe Tye Public Spaces Protection Order

Lewes District Council is consulting over options for a proposed Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) on Telscombe Tye. The purpose of a PSPO would be to protect the lambs and ewes that graze on the Tye from being scared, injured or killed by dogs.

PSPOs can be put in place by Councils to deal with issues that have a detrimental and persistent effect on the quality of life of residents in the area. Loss of ewes and lambs can have a major financial and emotional effect on the local community. The cost of replacing livestock is borne by the Town Council but ultimately from public funds. The sight of a dog attack, at the time of the incident and its aftermath, can be very distressing for all involved.
To respond to this consultation, please visit Lewes District Council’s website:-

You can also collect a paper version from Telscombe Civic Centre.

The consultation closing date is Friday 23 November 2018 at 5pm.
