Woking Ambassadors gets recycling

by admin on 3 October, 2009

I met the Sue Morley CEO of the ambassadors over a year ago to express my desire for visitors to the Ambassadors to be able to recycle their paper and plastic waste on leaving the cinema or theatre. It has taken a long time due to the need for the Ambassadors to renegotiate their waste […]

All residents in Woking should have received a letter telling them what day their waste and recycling collection days will change to from this week.  I have not received my letter yet and so I went to this website (http://www.woking.gov.uk/localservices) to see what day my collection changes to.  If you do not know what day […]
