You can now sign up to our Waste Reduction Challenge online.  Log on to http://www.recycleforgloucestershire.com/news_events/2010/waste_challenge_2010/index.html 

On this page, you can choose any of the 10 pledges aimed at cutting waste and reducing the amount that goes to landfill.  There are also hints and tips by each of the pledges.

Please sign up to at least 1 pledge, as part of the Waste Reduction Challenge.  Click on the ‘Pledge online’ tab on the left hand side, where you can also download a participation pack and a feedback form – I would be very grateful if you could fill this in and email it back to me after the challenge.
