The York and North Yorkshire Waste Partnership relies on the help of volunteers for many aspects of its work. Volunteers can get involved through a variety of projects and campaigns.
Rotters are volunteers, from all over York and North Yorkshire, who offer friendly advice and expertise to people in their local communities who would like to reduce their waste and save money.
The York Rotters were set up more than five years ago and continue to go from strength to strength with a dedicated group of volunteers that work within the city boundary.
The North Yorkshire Rotters project was launched in May 2006 in Northallerton and now has volunteer Rotters over most of the county.
What do the Rotters do?
The Rotters achieve their aims by getting as much face-to-face contact with local residents as possible by:
The Rotters have telephone and email help lines which you can use if you have any questions or queries on home composting or reducing your food waste or would like to arrange for a Rotter to give a talk or demonstration to your organisation. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01609 797212 for advice and information.
