Welcome to Saltash

We'd like to use this page to welcome newcomers to our blog and to SEA.

We have tips and suggestions of local food producers and shops where you can buy organic or locally grown produce. In progress!

A list, compiled by the SEA committee, of local producers in and around Saltash can be found here.

Ecover Products at Evans!: Evans the hardware shop has started stocking a really good range of ECOVER products with plans to do refills too in the very near future.

Recycling News

On 1st April 2012, Cornwall Council’s contract for refuse, recycling and garden waste collection was taken over by Cory Environmental (which has been handling the ex-Carrick DC area). The contract was awarded after a tender process but without any public consultation.

Information is available at the following urls.

Further details will be announced in the local media and on the Council’s website but timing has not been confirmed for this.

To date, details are not available about changes to refuse collection although an advisor at Cornwall Council has stated that recycling collection is likely to use a box system.

Garden waste is the only collection for which full details have been made available on-line (see third url above). This will use a ‘pay for use’ wheelie bin and permit system

If anyone has any suggestions they would like to add please post them on this page.
