Pic in Codsall in Jubilee Wood , a woodland created by the community and ‘Friends of Bilbrook’. They had been planting fruit trees in a community orchard but sadly a number of the trees have been vandalised, but company: Materials Recovery Ltd, have donated cash for new trees. At the front is L-R: Keri Lloyd from Friends of Bilbrook and Updesh Gidda from Materials Recovery Ltd, then at the back, also from Mat’ Rec’ ltd is: David Lloyd with local children: Jeremy Rose 11, Sadie Gidda 9, Joel Gidda 12 and Tilly Rose 9..

The Friends of Bilbrook planted 13 fruit trees but six have since been destroyed.

But Materials Recovery Limited has now handed £500 to the group, which will go towards the trees and also be spent on other projects.

Keri Lloyd, from The Friends of Bilbrook, said: “It will certainly pay for some of our trees but will pay for other projects too.

“We’ve had trees vandalised. We created a community orchard in our community woodlands, but we planted 13 fruit trees for people to help themselves to the fruit but six have been destroyed.

“Either they’ve been snapped or pulled out of the ground over three separate incidents.

“We’re not sure who does it but there is always littering so it’s probably the same people who decide to wreck everything.”

He said Materials Recovery Limited “gave us a lot of money, it’s very good.

“We can’t plant the trees until the winter now, but they had been growing quite a bit of blossom so we thought there might have been fruit this year.

“It was a huge disappointment to see they were vandalised and we’ve been having a rethink about where to put them.

“We’re a very active group, we do a lot of stuff, we’ve created a woodland which now needs management so it will pay for that.”

Remit: To analyse plastics and other materials still going into the waste skip and advise of ‘sustainable’ diversion possibilities

We invited MRL to advise on some of our difficult plastic and paper streams still going into our waste skip as no other companies were interested.  The team at MRL have visited site regularly and provided tangible solutions to a large percentage of our difficult waste streams, their ‘continuous improvement’  ethic has minimised the residual fraction going into the waste skip and the financial savings are measurable and significant.  We don’t normally give testimonials though feel it only right due to speed, commitment and results delivered by Materials Recovery Ltd
