Wanted - Recycling Committee Member
The EASI Committee is looking for an EASI member who is interested in recycling to join us and take on the role of updating our information on local recycling schemes that is provided through EASI’s Newsletter and on the EEG Website. This includes schemes such as Wokingham Borough Council’s latest initiatives, Ali’s Recycling and local supermarket and shop recycling schemes. Please get in touch with us if you are interested.
Beavers Litter Pick
EASI Committee Member Brenda attended a meeting of the 84th Reading Scout Group Beavers in September to tell the Beavers about EASI and to take them out litter picking. The Beavers were very receptive and knew that litter isn’t just unsightly but damages the environment and is a danger to the wildlife. About 18 Beavers, along with the Beaver Leaders, Brenda and her husband Les, then enthusiastically picked litter along the path between Radstock School and the back of the Leisure Centre. They seemed a bit disappointed that there wasn’t more litter (!) but in fact they filled the equivalent of two full bags and also found two shopping baskets, one of which was later returned to the supermarket. One of the Beavers announced that this was ‘very fun’ and everyone fully participated, so hopefully we will have recruited some avid litter pickers for the future.
Thames Valley Park Autumn Litter Pick
On October 12th members of EASI and the Earley Environmental Group’s Wednesday Volunteers joined Earley Town Council’s Annual Autumn Litter Pick at Thames Valley Park to litter pick the Thames Path between the Waterside Centre and the Horseshoe Bridge at the River Kennet. Many bags of litter (some from the Thames) were collected, helping to keep part of one of the area’s most attractive walking and cycling routes free of litter. We are grateful to Wokingham Waterside Centre for allowing us to use their car park and toilets.
The EASI Recycling Directory
The EASI Recycling database can be found on the Earley Environment Group Website under ‘Environment’ and ‘Recycling in Earley – an updated guide’. The Main Directory lists items that can be recycled, examples of the item, and where they can be recycled; including the use of the TerraCycle site. The Recycling Points list includes a map of where to find the recycling points.
The EASI Committee Members are Chris Bassett, Tracy Collins, Bob Collis, Brian Hackett, Grahame Hawker, Brenda Hill, Stephen Kerry and Richard Tredgett. Contact us on EASI’s Email address, or visit the EASI Facebook Page ‘EASI Litter Pickers – Earley’. We are listed in the Reading Voluntary Action's (RVA) Directory. Information about waste recycling and reporting substantial amounts of dumped rubbish or fly-tipping can be found on Wokingham Borough Council websites, as follows:
