    on Waste and Recycling was the basis for a lively, interesting and
    well-attended evening of discussions and ideas.

    During questions suggestions were made that Richmond Council could improve
    communication on re-cycling options and introduce easy ways to aid
    recycling in addition to the Townmead Road Re-use and Recycling Centre.

    The statistics regarding waste and recycling were an eye-opener !

    looking after the green side of things, from how to improve fuel
    management to encouraging guests to recycle. 100% of the music series
