The council wants residents to reduce household, non recyclable waste this September and to chart their progress.
To help participants complete the challenge, the council will share guidance on minimising waste
Environment Chief, Cllr Jon Burke, said: “It’s critically important that we act now to turn the tide on the destruction caused by single-use packaging.
