Wimborne Win on Waste

Volunteer Day - Breaking Down Disposable Barbecues

Following Litter Free Dorset's campaign and the devastating heath fires of 2022, Southern Co-op committed to permanently removing disposable BBQs from sale - and they now have 8000 surplus units in storage. To ensure that we find the best route for this stock, Litter Free Dorset and Dorset Council are working with W&S Recycling to repurpose/reuse the component parts and send a message to other retailers that they too should be making this move.

Stop Food Waste Day

From the Stop Food Waste Day website:

Prevent, Inspire and Repurpose

  1. Prevent food waste at source by storing food optimally, making use of every edible part of the ingredient and planning meals ahead of time
  2. Inspire others to waste less, and repurpose more
  3. Repurpose food by redistributing any surplus to your local community, or giving a second life to ingredients that most commonly go to waste
