Merchants support waste campaign

Published:  19 August, 2009

CANNOCK: Builders merchants are supporting Cannock Chase Council campaign to improve local waste management.

Councillor Tony Williams, Cannock Chase Council Environmental Sustainability Leader, said: "The August bank holiday weekend will see lots of people across the district getting some DIY done. I thank the DIY stores and builders' merchants for their help in getting this message out to the public. The council has a zero-tolerance approach to fly tipping and will always prosecute when there is enough evidence."

Steve Brown, manager of Linwood Trade Supplies in Hednesford, one of the participating stores, said: "Fly tipping is a real blight on our area and we are more than happy to work with Cannock Chase Council to encourage householders and tradesmen to dispose of their waste correctly."

Thirteen stores around Cannock are displaying posters and handing out leaflets in the run-up to the bank holiday weekend at the end of the month reminding householders and builders about their responsibilities for waste disposal.
