Green light for recycling

A BLYTH supermarket has been encouraging its customers to recycle more.

Staff at the Asda store in Cowpen Road dressed in green for the event to help get their message across.

Free recycling bags were given out, and Kevin Batson, of the waste management team at Northumberland County Council, was on hand to provide customers with advice about recycling and how to reduce the amount of waste they produce.

There was also a green tombola and face painting for children.
