Richmond residents are being invited to learn more about an eco-friendly initiative.

West London’s Waste Library tour will reach Richmond in August when it arrives at the East Sheen Library and Twickenham Library on August 21 and 22 respectively.

Locals will have the opportunity to find out more about how to reduce their waste, with advice on food, electricals, textiles, nappies and furniture.

The events will not only provide attendees with advice on how to reduce, re-use and recycle but will also provide an opportunity to save more than £60 a month with information and materials that they can take home.

Councillor Pamela Fleming, cabinet member for environment and planning, said: “We fully support West London’s Waste initiative to keep residents up to date about how they can minimise waste, with regards to food and other materials.

“By sharing its best practice, Waste London Waste allows us to better protect our environment but also reduce our spending by as much as £60 a month.

“Residents should take full advantage of this opportunity to learn more about its messages and play an active role in our efforts to reduce waste across the borough.”
