2 How to deal with your waste guide Limavady Borough Council has responsibility for disposing of some commercial and all domestic household waste which arises in the Borough. This booklet is intended as a source of information to help inform the public on the work carried out by council staff to collect, process and dispose of this wide range of materials. Tasks include keeping the borough clean and tidy, reducing the amount of materials we send to landfill and reducing the amount of waste emanating from our homes and businesses. Information such as this will help us all to make more informed choices about the waste we produce and how we can maintain and indeed improve protection of our environment. Waste comes under council control in a number of ways- Materials are collected from households and/or businesses by council operators. Brought to bring sites/recycling centres by the public. In public bins and unfortunately dumped in the street as litter. Illegal dumping along roadsides or fields. The amount of waste type materials which council has to deal with has been generally increasing. However in the year April 2008 to March 2009 there was a decrease which could be due both to more efficient use/reuse in a difficult financial climate and good council communication on waste reduction. This decrease is good news for council and rate-payers alikedecreased waste arising in the borough reduces processing and land-filling costs. This guide provides information on current environmental performance and useful tips on how we can all improve. For further information contact; Limavady Borough Council Technical Services Department. 7 Connell Street, Limavady BT49 0HA. Tel

3 LIMAVADY BOROUGH COUNCIL WASTE FACTS 2008/ tonnes of household waste was sent to landfill. A 2 % increase from 64% 2007/08 to 66% in 2008/09. Waste in landfill creates harmful green house gases such as methane and CO2. These are harmful greenhouse gases which speed up global warming. Reducing grey bin use will help slow down global warming. Land filling costs council more per tonne than recycling as landfill waste is heavily taxed by central government. Everyone can do their thing to reduce their waste. LIMAVADY BOROUGH COUNCIL RECYCLING FACTS We experienced a decrease in the dry recycling rate (blue) bin from 2007/08. The rate fell from 31.48% to 25.85% 2008/09. A drop of 5.63 % in the dry recycling rate. We have fallen back on reaching our recycling rate targets, we need to get back on track. If we do not hit these targets council will be fined and this may impact on services. Every little you recycle does help your borough and the environment.

4 REDUCE REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF WASTE YOU PRODUCE REUSE Look out for this symbol on products it means you can and should reuse them Cutting down on the amount of waste produced will save the environment as new materials will not need to be produced Save money, buy only food that will be used, try to avoid buying in excess. This will reduce food waste. Reduce waste by avoiding buying disposable items such as nappies and razors In the supermarket choose minimum packaging on products, such as loose fruit and vegetables. Reuse items instead of throwing them out. Ask yourself can I reuse this? Get the most out of the item When shopping buy items that can be reused such as rechargeable batteries rather than disposables which cannot be reused Reuse tins, cans and jars for crayons, pencils, nuts, bolts etc. Thrift shops and community groups resell toys, furniture etc. Give them a call to see if they will take what you don t need. Re-use envelopes if possible Put old clothes into clothes banks, or donate to charity shops. Reuse plastic drink containers for work and school Reduce Your Grey Landfill Bin Use Limavady Borough sends more than 66% of household materials to landfill. This could be vastly reduced.

5 RECYCLE Useful Tips to Recycle Have a few old bins at home to separate your recyclable materials into different sections, such as glass, cans, food waste, old paint, and newspapers. Make recycling easy for yourself. Take the recyclable materials you have collected such as glass to the recycling facilities at the civic amenity sites and recycling centres. Buy items which have been produced from recycled materials. RECYCLE YOUR WASTE Recycling Helps cut down the amount of waste in Landfill Sending useful recyclable materials such as cardboard and glass to landfill instead of recycling, uses up land space. Landfill also leads to destruction of natural ecosystems as toxic liquids and greenhouse gases are given off from landfill sites. Producing goods from recycled materials uses less energy than production from raw materials. Recycling paper stops deforestation and uses 70% less energy than production from virgin tree materials. Recycling aluminium cans uses 95% less energy than production from raw materials. Recycling glass saves about 50% of the energy required to make new bottles and jars.

6 Use Your BLUE BIN to Recycle these items Newspaper Magazines Card & Cardboard (please flatten if possible) Plastic bottles only (Please rinse & leave lids on) Food & Drink Cans (Steel & Aluminium) Information leaflets and flyers (junk mail) Printed office paper. All phone and information directories. Tetra pack- cartons Aerosols Plastic food containers such as yogurt pots, margarine tubs, fruit pun nets. DO NOT CONTAMINATE YOUR BLUE BIN WITH UNACCEPTABLE WASTE. IT WILL NOT BE EMPTIED, IT S YOUR BIN, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT IS PUT INTO IT. There are good collection facilities at Ballyquin Rd. Limavady, Chapel Rd. Dungiven for electrical items and at Bring Sites for textiles, however small electrical items such as kitchen knives, drills and hairdryers etc can be put into the blue bin rather than the grey landfill bin. This also applies to small items of textiles such as socks, T-shirts and children s clothing. Small electrical items and textiles should only go into the blue bin if they cannot be taken to any of the designated collection points mentioned above. Always think Recycle, even your garden and food waste can be recycled in a good way to produce compost. Recycle garden waste by using your Brown compostable bin Items Allowed in BROWN BIN Grass Cuttings Small tree branches and Hedge pruning s Weeds and Leaves Dead flowers / plants Garden waste can be recycled into compost for use in flower beds and vegetable plots. THANKS FOR USING YOUR BROWN BIN Our composting rate has increased from 4.49 % in 2007/08 to 7.18% 2008/09 KEEP IT UP

7 Trader / Commercial User The introduction of Technical Services Department s Blue Bin Pilot Scheme to Traders/Commercial Users has been very successful and we are encouraging all traders/commercial users to avail of the recycling waste collection service. Traders who purchase an additional bin or designate a bin specifically for recycling can have this collected every two weeks by Council for an additional 10% reduction on the present charge. The recycle bin must be clearly marked and identified for recyclables only. This additional reduction will apply to the recyclables bin only. The materials which can be accepted in the recyclable bin will be the same as the blue domestic bin and are listed below. Please note the additional materials which are now acceptable. All types of paper (newspapers, magazines, flyers/leaflets), clean cardboard, aluminium cans (ie coke, fanta), steel cans (ie beans, fruit), plastic bottles (ie milk, cordials, shampoo, detergents), aerosols, tetra-pak cartons, plastic containers (yoghurt pots, fruit punnets), margarine / butter tubs, etc) The residual landfill refuse collection percentage reductions of 5% for 6 months and 10% for yearly payments in advance will remain unchanged. All businesses are encouraged to avail of this opportunity to improve their environmental performance and save money. Trader / Commercial User

Simple guide To Home Composting A composting bin only 15 with Free Delivery from Limavady Council or Free to some areas. Food waste and garden materials can all be composted together. GOOD Compost (Yes) Fruit Uncooked Vegetable Peelings Egg Shells Coffee Grounds Grass/ twigs Small amounts of paper/card Not Good X Non-Compostable (No) Cooked Vegetables Meat Cat /Dog Litter Unchopped pieces of wood Bones Dairy products

11 try home COMPOSTING Steps To Compost Place the compost bin on the soil or grass but not concrete. Locate in the warm sunny spot of the garden. Add food waste daily to the bin. Turn the waste daily and when adding new material to the bin. Turning helps the pile get more oxygen and helps the waste to compost. Over time, 6-12 months you should have compost for your garden. Benefits Of Composting Reduces waste in grey bin. Provides free compost for your garden and plants. Saves council money on landfill charges. Closes the waste cycle at home waste produced is effectively treated in the garden. Composting your own food materials shows how much food is actually wasted at home. This will encourage householders to shop only for what is needed. Place the compost bin on the soil or grass Locate in the warm sunny spot - Add food waste daily. Turn the waste daily. - Turning helps the pile get more oxygen months you should have compost for your garden.

12 Green Shed which is part of LCDI is based at the Roe Valley Hospital in Limavady. Our aim is to increase the participation of the general public and business in the reuse / recycling of unwanted items. This stops these items being sent to landfill.

15 Children - Reduce Your Waste Litter is any item that is dropped, thrown or deposed of in a public place. It looks untidy, can be a danger to human health, wildlife and the environment. Everyone can do their bit to resolve the boroughs litter problem by binning their rubbish in the litter bins located throughout the borough. Steps To REDUCE REUSE RECYCLE Choose toys with little packaging or toys made from recyclable packaging. When shopping don t take a plastic bag for items you can carry. Do not throw away your old toys, give them to someone else such as a charity shop. Always clear your plate, cut down on your food waste by finishing your dinner. Your parents will be pleased Choose sweets in the sweet shop with less packaging.

16 Children Reuse - Recycle Your Waste Reuse household items and Reduce your waste Instead of putting it in the bin ask can it be reused this helps the environment. Use reusable drinks bottles for your packed lunches. Try to avoid disposable drinks. Be creative reuse cardboard and plastic to make some art from your waste it can be fun When food shopping, remind your parents to bring a Bag for Life that can be reused. Try to avoid taking plastic bags from the shop. WORD SEARCH ANSWERS Children Recycle your waste Recycling your waste is better for the environment. Recycling products means that your waste gets used again and not dumped in the ground. It means turning old waste like glass into new things such as jars and bottles. Start your own compost pile for the family s food and garden waste. Get permission and advice from your parents before you start composting. Your garden worms will love it. Help your parents to separate recyclable waste in-house. Before you bin it ask your parents if it can be recycled. The more you recycle, the more you can do to help us reach the recycling targets. Ask your parents to buy recycled products instead of new ones. Tell your friends to recycle too. Do you re best for the planet and always remember Reduce, Reuse and Recycle when dealing with your waste.

17 Management of litter Management of litter is another area of significant work for council. Limavady like all other areas has it s fair share of individuals who refuse to dispose of their litter in a responsible way by making use of public litter bins. Litter collection work extends through the entire borough to cover all 625 miles of roads, with litter teams starting work at 5am during the week and 4am on weekends then working through to 6pm. Deposition of larger scale amounts of waste in the form of illegal dumping has occurred right across the borough. As well as one off opportunist events there were hotspot areas where household and commercial waste was being dumped in large quantities on a regular basis. This material was unsightly and in many cases environmentally dangerous due to ground and watercourse contamination. Council workers were left to clean up this mess which was a distraction from normal operational duties. Clearance of illegally dumped material also incurs extra costs which diverts finances away from essential services. In an effort to resolve this issue council purchased a military style closed circuit television camera. There has been a marked decrease in occurrences of fly tipping and illegal dumping since council adopted this initiative. The camera can be deployed in any area and the images recorded can then be used as evidence leading to prosecution of offenders. Green garden material being collected for composting.

18 waste disposal in the Borough Litter is any item that is dropped, thrown or deposed in a public place. It looks untidy and can be a danger to human health, wildlife and the environment. Everyone can do their bit to resolve the boroughs litter problem by binning their rubbish in the litter bins located throughout the borough. Tips to Help Disposing of your waste correctly in the borough is very important. Take responsibility for your rubbish and dispose of it correctly in one of the councils litter bins around the borough. If you do not correctly deal with your rubbish it can attract vermin and makes the borough look unpleasant for all citizens and tourists. Fly tipping of rubbish makes the borough look untidy and is a danger to the environment. Instead of polluting the environment take waste to civic amenity sites where the waste can be dealt with correctly. Chewing gum and cigarette butts can be seen on the pavements throughout the council area. Cleaning up these items can be expensive and ties up resources that could be better used. Always clean up your dog s waste. Bin it when walking your dog as dog fouling is a human health hazard to all citizens. Always remember to do the right thing, bin your rubbish when you are out in the borough. Please do not drop litter or you could face a fine for a littering offence. Public Litter Bin Illegal Dumping at Limavady Junction May 2009 Take responsibility for your rubbish! 1 load of black bin landfill. 14 of these mounds are produced each week in the borough.

19 Paper Recycling Process This figure shows the recycling process for one of the most commonly occurring materials in our lives- paper. Paper makes up the largest volume of material in our blue bin dry recyclable collection and is collected in so many different forms- magazines, newspapers, leaflets, books, wrapping, wallpaper, toys etc. By recycling paper we not only reduce the number of trees we cut down but also the amount of energy we use. Trees act as natural air filters. Carbon dioxide is absorbed through leaves and used by the tree for growth and repair. Oxygen is released back into the atmosphere so trees help to naturally regulate the make up of our atmosphere. By reducing the number of trees we cut down we are therefore maintaining the natural gas balance in our atmosphere. The paper recycling principal is very similar to most other recycling processes. The main point of this illustration is to show that by recycling our waste we reduce or indeed eliminate the need for new virgin materials to produce the goods and services we require. From the top going clockwise the paper item, in this case a newspaper is used and then put into a recycling collection. All this paper is then collected by council and passed on to the recycling company who sort it and pass it on to the manufacturers. At the production plant paper is shredded into narrow strips which are then fed into the mulcher. New pulp is produced by adding water and chemicals for colouring. This is then rolled into sheets and dried. The finished product is sold on to manufacturers who cut the paper to size and print their information onto it. To re-emphasize the point- there are no trees added in this particular cycle. However it may in some cases be necessary to add new virgin materials depending on the required quality of the finished item.
