Project Description

Some final considerations for Christmas:

1. Wrapping paper recycling – have a look at this video clip to see which gift wrapping items you can recycle https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvofof3BXR0&list=PLFB0147B96ADF2D3A&index=1

2. Reduce food waste – with the average Irish Family throwing out €700 worth of food each year, try to reduce your food waste by planning your portions carefully https://www.lovefoodhatewaste.com/portion-planner

3. Have a look at some tasty recipes for Christmas leftovers: https://stopfoodwaste.ie/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/SFW-Christmas-Recipes-web-version.pdf

4. Crisp packet recycling – don’t forget to collect and deposit your empty crisp packets in our collection point (the Information Booth/Telephone Kiosk) – or give them to your children to put into the collection points in Birdhill N.S.

5. Recycle your Christmas Tree at Nenagh Recycling centre – see opening hours over Christmas (attached).
Birdhill Tidy Towns will also continue to facilitate the collection of Christmas Trees for shredding.
