Friday, 24 January 2014 12:53:21 Europe/London

You’re the local council. Part of your responsibility to residents is waste management and recycling facilities. You encourage them to recycle, prevent litter, help with composting by using a food caddy, and keep streets tidy by removing their wheelie bins from the pavement after emptying.
