Lancaster district in action
The Recycling Forum is a topic group of the Sustainability Partnership of Lancaster District.
Please note: The Kerbside Recycling Scheme is not the responsibility of the Recycling Forum. For all queries regarding the Kerbside Scheme and general waste removal services, see our page on Rubbish, Waste and Recycling.
You can make 20 cans out of recycled material with the same amount of energy it takes to make one new one!
What is the Recycling Forum?
We are a group of committed individuals from Lancaster district who meet on a regular basis to encourage recycling and waste reduction. Our goals are:
- To conserve natural resources and reduce waste production
- To increase recycling and access to recycling facilities
- To reduce pollution to water, air and land
- To reduce energy use
- To increase the use of energy from renewable sources
The Recycling Forum is one of the six Topic Groups of the Lancaster District Sustainability Partnership.
The Little Book of Sustainable Living
The Recycling Forum has published 3 editions of the award winning Recycling Directory and we wanted to branch out to involve other aspects of sustainable living.
In summer 2009 we plan to launch The Little Book of Sustainable Living which will contain information on climate change, peak oil, energy efficiency, waste reduction and many other subjects which show how we can all do a lot, or just a little, to live more sustainably.
