I am Kate McFarland, Assistant Waste Partnership and Strategy Officer at Norfolk County Council, and this is my blog for Waste Free Week 2008, which is running for the week from the 27th October 2008.
I have taken up the Recycle for Norfolk challenge to reduce my waste as much as possible during the week - by composting, reusing and recycling waste. This blog will follow my journey to becoming waste free.
The Recycle for Norfolk team have been encouraging householders across Norfolk to sign up to the week, and hundreds have already joined the challenge. All households taking part in the week are asked to report back to the Recycle for Norfolk team, with the chance of winning some great prizes, but also so the team can find out what worked well for households and what challenged them.
