Graham Morgan, Chairperson of MRWA, said: “These projects can have a significant impact on their local community and make Merseyside and Halton a cleaner and greener place for us all to live and work. Giving groups the opportunity to get involved in looking after their environment can only bring benefits to all and can help us appreciate items as valuable resources rather than something which otherwise might be just thrown away.
“The projects really seem to understand the importance of resource efficiency and community education. We’re really looking forward to seeing what they achieve.”
The funding will help recycling and waste management projects and activities in the wards around GTDT on Lodge Lane including Picton, Princes Park and Greenbank as well as Kensington Fields and Riverside. The Trust will continue to work with MRWA to develop models of good practice within communities to create packages of support which promote good recycling practices and help to change people’s behaviour.
