HUNDREDS of Helena tenants in Blackbrook and the town centre have been receiving environmental tips - on their own doorstep.

Council officers and staff from Helena Partnerships have been out and about in the area passing on information about recycling services.

Both organisations are currently running a recycling and composting campaign.

Councillor Richard McCauley, cabinet member for Environmental Protection and Safer Communities, said: “The visits helped to remind residents of the value of recycling – and just how easy it is.

“Plastic bottles are a real issue. And it certainly makes you stop and think when you realise that if everyone in the UK recycled just one extra plastic bottle during Recycle Week, it would save enough energy to power over 71,000 plasma screen TVs for a year!”
