"In the new European Commission, form follows function. We have to be open to change. We have to show that the Commission can change. What I present to you today is a political, dynamic and effective European Commission, geared to give Europe its new start. I have given portfolios to people – not to countries. I am putting 27 players in the field, each of whom has a specific role to play – this is my winning team.”"
Andrew Glebocki, one of the residents who took part in the project, said: "I've been meaning to compost for a long time but this project provided the impetus to get me started. We are now in the habit of putting vegetable peelings, tea bags and fruit cores in our kitchen caddy instead of the general waste bin, and then adding these to the composter with grass cuttings and trimmings from the garden. After a whole year of composting, we can see the difference in our plants and vegetables and are delighted that for the first time in five years, we’ve successfully grown rhubarb (a very nutrient-hungry fruit). We’ll definitely never go back to sending our food and garden waste to landfill.”"
"But when they talk about unspent funds a lot of that money is allocated and tied up, waiting to be spent. We only find out at the beginning of April how much we are going to get. The ideal change would be for the Treasury to announce the diversion rates for the next couple of years so we could do more forward planning."
