Bolton is joining forces with local authorities around the region to launch Watch Your Waste Week.

The campaign, run by Recycle for Greater Manchester, seeks to spread the word about ways to reduce waste and save money through a series of events, three of which will be held in Bolton.

Tomorrow (November 16) a cookery class will be held to teach residents more about using left overs to cook tasty dishes with a qualified nutritionist.

The class will be delivered in partnership with Naturally Wells, and held at the Cobden Centre, Felton Walk from 6.30pm to 9pm.

On Tuesday, November 22, residents who fancy a new wardrobe or have an unloved piece of clothing can attend a Sew Good Workshop. The workshop will give attendees the confidence to alter, mend and remake their clothes.

Delivered in partnership with TRAID, the workshop will take place at the Halliwell Ucan Centre, Hatfield Road, from 6pm to 9pm

Ashburner Street Market will play host to a Pre-loved Living Room event on Thursday, November 24.

Anyone attending will see that second hand furniture does not mean second rate, and find out about how to donate unwanted furniture to Bolton Community Transport.

Bolton Council’s Executive Member for Cleaner, Greener, Safer, Councillor Elaine Sherrington, said: “Reusing and recycling can help residents find an easy way to save money, and make the borough greener.

“Whether it’s through reusing clothes, finding new recipe ideas for left overs, or considering second hand furniture, there are simple steps that people can take to reduce their waste, and I’d encourage as many people as possible to look into these events.”
