On the 24th January the Environmental Champions will be pounding the streets to ensure that students returning from their holidays are presenting their waste correctly and that any accumulations of waste are dealt with before they become a nuisance.
The team will also be sending out safety advice alongside the Student Police Initiative http://www.cardiffdigs.co.uk/lockithideitkeepit.htm related to ensuring that all residents do not make it obvious how generous Santa has been by leaving packaging of expensive presents on display or in/next to bins as burglars know the packaging relates to items worth stealing. The advice is to rip boxes/packaging in such a way that it is not obvious what was contained in it and then recycle.
The champions are always keen to attract any more willing volunteers and anyone is welcome to come along to assist in this educational drive at the start of term.
