Cllr David Burton, Leader of Maidstone Borough Council said:
“The Centre is proving to be a real success, why not book into one of these sessions and come along and see for yourself. People have been dropping in for energy saving help, money saving grants, sustainable living ideas, wildlife friendly gardening tips, active travel advice, recycling activities and much more. There are resources to help people better understand the solutions, products, and services already available that can help them lead a more sustainable life.”
A team member from Maidstone Borough Council’s Waste team will also be holding drop in waste surgeries on Thursday 22 and 29 September for people to come along to ask waste questions, learn what can and can't be recycled or to find out more information about the waste services the council offer.
The Go Green Information Centre is located on the first floor near the King Street entrance, just by the escalators, opposite Muffin Break. It is open from Thursday to Sunday from 10am to 4pm every week until Sunday 2 October. To celebrate Great Big Green Week the centre will be open every day between Saturday 24 September and Sunday 2 October.
