Do not burn garden waste
9:00pm Wednesday 20th March 2013 in News
GARDENERS are being urged against lighting bonfires to get rid of their garden waste.
Worcestershire Regulatory Services (WRS) have suggested if people do choose to light a fire, they should take extra care and keep neighbours in mind.
Councillor Marcus Hart, joint commitee chairman, suggested gardeners compost waste.
“Smoke prevents people from opening windows, enjoying their gardens, hanging out washing and can have damaging health effects, especially on those with existing health problems such as asthma,” he said.
