PAPER CLIP REVOLUTION AT WORCESTER COUNTY HALL

Staff at Worcestershire CC have been told they are not allowed any new paper clips, in an attempt to save public money and help 'green' the council, reported The Observer (p5). The move forms part of its drive to become a 'greener council', which includes such ideas as using rechargeable batteries and re-using envelopes.

The council has estimated there are more than 100,000 paper clips in County Hall which are currently not being used. Now officers have set up a paper clip recycling bank. Other measures include using only solar-powered calculators, recycling cans and bottles, sharing equipemnt and using second-hand or recycled products wherever possible.

'This is a fun way to make a serious point about recycling', said the council's sustainability officer, Fiona Narburgh.
