Recycling Week is running from Monday 16 October to Sunday 22 October 2023.
Now in its 20th year, it is a celebration of recycling across the nation, encouraging people to make the right choices, more often.
This year’s theme is ‘missed capture’ – those items that can be recycled but are often missed.
Throughout the week, we will be sharing information about how to recycle, myths about recycling and how we can support you in keeping your community clean and litter free.
So, why is recycling important?
Recycling at home helps to reduce the need for landfill and more expensive forms of waste disposal. Recycling also reduces our reliance on our natural resources, protecting our precious air and water. In turn, this saves energy, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and helps to fight our climate crisis.
It can be confusing to know what you can and can’t recycle, so do check out the recycle now website and familiarise yourself with what the different symbols mean.
We know that fly-tipping is a common problem for our customers, and we encourage you to report anyone seen dumping bulk rubbish, as this is considered anti-social behaviour. Please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we will ensure the matter is dealt with.
