ERYC Re-Cycling Credit Scheme
As a community we are members of the East riding of Yorkshire Council's Recycling Credit Scheme. This means that for every tonne of glass/cans/plastic we recycle, we are rewarded financially. The funds we received are utilised for environmental schemes within our community. Between receiving our first credit on the 12th May 2009 and the 31st March 2013 we have secured £3,016.09 through the scheme. The majority of the funds have been used to resurface the road leading to the recycling facility but more recently we have used the funds to run a competition to encourage everyone in the village to clean up after their dogs.
The glass/cans/plastic, etc MUST be recycled at the Playing fields facility behind the tennis courts on Storking Lane to qualify. We don't qualify for funding if we use our blue bins at home. We would like to encourage everyone in the village to support our community and continue to recycle your glass/cans/plastics, etc at the Playing Fields site.

On Sunday 25th November the village suffered more flooding. It was, however, nice to see the community rallying round and providing everything from pumps to bales of straw, cups of tea and biscuits as we tried to keep people's property dry - so thank you to all those people that helped!
We used the Parish Council's allocation of sandbags, sand and plastic sheeting. If you received some, I hope they worked and would ask you to keep them for next time (but store the bags dry and empty of sand or they will rot). At the present time there is no plan to replace our stocks.As with everything there is always room for improvement and if you have any constructive feedback on recent activities please do contact us.
With winter looming now is the time to check you are prepared for anything unexpected (snow, ice, floods etc). Check out our Emergency Plan page for advice and useful links.
Have you been affected by flooding in Wilberfoss - let us know by printing/completing the questionnaire here then taking it to the post box at the front of Wilberfoss Community Centre by Monday 15th April 2013.
Time capsule - a legacy for everyone
The Parish Council would like to create a time capsule by the beacon on the playing fields. It would be inaugurated in early June 2013 to mark the 60th anniversary of HM the Queen's Coronation and Wilberfoss Jubilee Project picture exhibition. Would you like to contribute or help with this wonderful legacy project? What would you put in the capsule? Please do let us know.
