Shropshire - Working in the Community

Working in the Community

Discover some of the community projects that we are involved in within Shropshire

Veolia is committed to working with the community sector.

  • Working with the Shropshire Furniture Scheme to encourage people to donate their unwanted furniture so it can be reused by those in need
  • Engaging with schools in the Shropshire area to develop recycling via Bring sites
  • Using organisations who are committed to employing people with learning difficulties
  • Funding the Master Composter Scheme.

The Master Composter group is run and managed by Shropshire Council with its contractors, Veolia , helping to fund the scheme. A two-day foundation course is held at Shirehall in Shrewsbury with the second day being held at Ryton Organic Gardens in Coventry at various times throughout the year.

The course covers all elements of the home composting process including an in-depth look at the types of materials that make successful compost. Once qualified, volunteers will go out and about across the county to talk to groups about how to compost at home.

For further information about the Master Composter Group please call Tim Walters at Veolia on 0203 567 4612  or visit the Garden Organic site.

Shropshire Council in conjunction with Veolia in Shropshire Limited offers a number of schemes to Shropshire's schools to help them minimise waste and recycle more.
