Waste & Recycling Strategy Consultation

Published: 29 Jun 21

About the Recycling and Waste Strategy. We only have one planet and all waste goes somewhere. This is a mission to achieve ‘zero waste’ and is an important part of protecting our planet. As a council we have declared a climate emergency, and as the waste we produce has associated carbon emissions this strategy will form part of the climate emergency work. We must think of waste as being a resource from which as much value as possible should be recovered. Our strategy is focused on working with residents, businesses, community groups and town and parish councils to contribute towards North Somerset’s net zero carbon aims, as well as changing the way we operate our waste services to achieve our targets.

Slow Ways

Published: 22 Oct 20

Slow Ways is a project to create a network of walking routes that connect all of Great Britain's towns and cities as well as thousands of villages. Using existing footpaths, people will be able to use the Slow Ways to walk beteen settlements or combine routes for long distance journeys. During lockdown 700 volunteers from across the country collaborated to produce a first draft of the Slow Ways. This incredible effort has led to the creation of 7,500 routes that collectively stretch for over 68,350 miles. While there are thousands of miles of paths linking places across the country, there isn't a comprehensive network designed to help people walk off-road between all towns and cities. That’s what the Slow Ways project aims to do. Click the above title for details of how to be involved. Read More...
