TTL arranges talks and trips to improve knowledge on how to minimise waste and maximise recycling. TTL also have an awareness of County Council plans for waste disposal and have provided feedback to encourage a reuse and recycle approach rather than incineration.
TTL have signed up to be the Community Leader to help the town gain the status of PLASTIC FREE LETCHWORTH.
