Surfers against Sewage

SAS protects the health of recreational water users from sewage polluted water. Scientific studies have consistently highlighted that those using beaches, lakes or rivers forsports are most at risk of falling sick from an illness associated with sewage polluted water. They are also seeking improvements to the combined sewer overflow (CSOs) systems that pollute recreational waters all too frequently, usually after heavy rainfall. Much of current investment has ignored or disregarded the impacts of climate change, in particular changing weather patterns that will result in increased flows of water into and out of the sewage works without treatment because there is not enough capacity to store the sewage.

Cornwall Council: Recycling, rubbish and waste

Household waste and refuse collection services are now controlled by Cornwall Council. The former district councils had contracts with waste management companies or provided services themselves. These contracts have a varying number of years to run and their management will be transferred to the Cornwall Council over time. A kerbside recycling collection service is offered to every household and this can be used to recycle over 40% of waste.
