Interactive map launched to mark Zero Waste Week

It’s Zero Waste Week, and people across the UK are being challenged to reduce the amount of food they throw away, to help save money, protect the environment, and preserve resources.

This year Buckinghamshire Council is marking Zero Waste Week by launching its own local zero waste map to help local people reduce their waste. The map shows all the shops, recycling points and businesses in Buckinghamshire that can help us reduce our waste. Whether it’s a nappy library, zero waste refill shop, furniture repairs or just somewhere to recycle your carrier bag, the map shows it all.

There are already over 100 locations that offer products or services that are perfect for Zero Waste Week. The map also has more than 75 locations where people can drop off hard to recycle items, like crisp packets, carrier bags or even toothbrushes – and the Council is asking members of the public to update the map with all the recycling and re-use opportunities in their own local community.
