The Shropshire Horticultural Society is increasingly aware of green issues. Accordingly, for 2018 the waste management contract has been awarded to Zero Waste, a not-for-profit organisation who have an excellent reputation having worked for various other prestigious events including the Hay Festival, the Llangollen Eisteddfod, the Shrewsbury Folk festival, RAF Museum Cosford and others. They will provide a team to be onsite throughout the show to pro-actively manage the waste generated to ensure that as much as possible is re-cycled. They will be working directly with traders, exhibitors, food vendors etc. to facilitate the segregation and handling of their waste.
For the general public Zero Waste will provide numerous bins around the Showground to allow rubbish to be segregated at the point of disposal and they will be pro-active in trying to minimise the waste left on the ground in the spectator area each evening by providing waste bags for picnickers to use.
Therefore, the co-operation of all those attending the Show to work with Zero Waste to maximise their efforts would be much appreciated.
