BRITAIN’S Got Talent judge Amanda Holden visited Mirfield as part of a campaign to get the country recycling.

The 38-year-old star of the ITV show arrived in her chauffeur-driven black Mercedes to meet residents of Waste Lane to encourage people to re-use their rubbish.

She was touring streets called Waste Lane across the country as part of an initiative called the Waste Less Challenge.

She said: "You can turn household rubbish into something brilliant – empty water bottles into mini greenhouses, coffee jars into lanterns, thereby reducing waste and reducing landfill problems.

"I’m a working mum, like most of the mums in this country, so I’m juggling my life and work.

"I just about remember to put my cardboard and my wine bottles outside. This actually makes it into something quite fun.

"It’s quite simple and believe me if I can do it, anyone can do it."

Eco-warrior Oliver Heath is also backing the campaign, being run by Kenco.

He said: "My job is to help people creatively cut down on their waste.

"The amount of stuff we throw away in England is incredible.

"Every hour we throw away enough to fill the Albert Hall.

"There’s very basic things people can do."
