Recycling champions launch website in Fenland

A group of recycling champions now have their own website, and they're hoping it will make recycling easier. 

Fenland District Council's Getting It Sorted volunteers have launched www.gettingitsorted.org- thanks to grant funding from local wind farm developments.

It's been designed with a quick and simple search tool to illustrate what goes where and tips on how you can reduce or reuse your waste.


You can find out about whether certain items are recyclable including more complex ones like electricals, bubble wrap and coffee cups. 

Councillor Peter Murphy, Fenland District Council's Portfolio Holder for the Environment, said:

"It's great that money set aside for community benefit from local wind farm developments has been used by our volunteers to develop a new website that can help improve residents' recycling knowledge.


The website is currently in its test phase and locals are welcome to give their feedback. 

It's available on your phone and it can be translated into six languages. 

The Getting It Sorted volunteers have also set up their own Facebook page to raise further awareness of recycling - just search for 'Getting It Sorted Volunteers'.
