On Saturday 3rd December a large community day will be held in Sneinton, Nottingham, to raise awareness of the proposed expansion of the Eastcroft incinerator and promote recycling through fun and games. Sneinton's Rubbish Day Out is an event organised by the local community and the NAIL campaign.
Artists will work to put new use to waste materials as lantern making, basket weaving, banner painting and wallet making workshops will take place throughout the day. Other activities include poetry, speakers, live music and refreshments from the new Sneinton community cafe collective.

“The council should make a bigger effort to provide recycling facilties instead of taking the easy option of burning all our waste” *
It is expected the council will make a decision on the application early next year. The NAIL campaign will continue to oppose the expansion and promote waste management alternatives.
