[26 NOV 98] WARWICKSHIRE WILDLIFE TRUST PRESS RELEASE
New Cash For Local Environmental Project

There were celebrations throughout Warwickshire today, Thursday 26 November 1998 as SITA Environmental Trust handed over 50,000 from Landfill Tax to fund an environmental project called Wasteline for 1999. The project aims to minimise household waste in Warwickshire by working with local schools and other community groups on projects to encourage them to remember the three Rs: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.

The project is a joint initiative between SITA Environmental Trust Ltd, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and Warwickshire County Council. During 1998, 53% of primary schools in Warwickshire and many more members of the general public have taken part. It is anticipated that the project will reach even more people in 1999 as a result of the new funding.

Brian Ward, Managing Director of SITA Landfill and Quarries Division and chairman of the SITA Environmental Trust Ltd said:

"The Board Members of the Trust are delighted to be able to support Warwickshire Wildlife Trust with their environmental project in the pursuit of promoting waste management practices for the benefit of everyone."

Peter Samwell from Warwickshire County Council's Policy Development Unit said:

"The funding from SITA Environmental Trust will allow us to continue to raise awareness of waste disposal problems and to promote better waste management practices. We will be able to extend our activity with schools and also promote recycling and composting in Warwickshire."

Dr Andy Tasker, Director of Warwickshire Wildlife Trust said:

"This continuing partnership between ourselves, Warwickshire County Council and SITA Environmental Trust demonstrates the way in which Landfill Tax can bring additional funding for everyone's benefit. We hope that we can develop this partnership further in the future."

This protect is one of a range of environmental projects supported by SITA Environmental Trust through Landfill Tax.
