Peterborough to be a Zero Waste Place



Peterborough to be a Zero Waste Place
Peterborough is to become a 'zero waste city centre' under plans announced by the newly appointed recycling minister Jane Kennedy.

Six places around the UK have been chosen to take part in the Zero Waste Place initiative, which was announced in the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affair's Waste Strategy 2007.

In Peterborough, Cathedral Square and the three streets leading from it will participate in the waste reduction scheme.

More than 200 retailers and offices will participate in the scheme, including the town hall, council offices and the Queensgate Shopping Centre.

Ms Kennedy said: "These places will go as far as possible to reduce, reuse and recycle all types of waste whether it's from a home, a school or business. We are really looking forward to working with the six places, and seeing how their approaches can change our behaviour towards waste."

Other places which will take part in the scheme are the London Boroughs of Brent and Lewisham, Stanley Church End in Milton Keynes, Kings Lynn in Norfolk and the West Midlands.

Peterborough is also the site of a zero carbon development.

The development in the city's South Bank Area will be powered by a biomass combined heat and power plant and will harvest rainwater and recycle waste water.
