Recycle Week in the UK (June 22-28)

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

Recycle Week, an annual event, began on Monday June 22, 2009 in the UK and will continue through Sunday June 28, 2009.

This year, the theme for Recycle Week is ‘let’s waste less…’ encouraging all of us to try something new in an effort to go greener and cut back on the waste we all produce.

From recycling more of everyday items like glass and plastic bottles to reusing carrier bags or composting at home, there are lots of opportunities to promote how we can all reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill.

“Recycle Week is now in its fifth year and this is the first time we’ll be promoting a waste reduction message” said Jane Hall from Recycle Now. “As part of this we’re encouraging people to sign up and pledge to either try something new or do more of what we already do.”

Across the country there will be lots of events taking place to highlight local recycling services and ways that can help us all do our bit.

You can find out what is happening in your area by entering your postcode on the Event Finder.

Whatever pledge(s) you choose to do – your efforts really will help to make a difference.

Check out some of the latest pledges and be sure to state your own pledge:

Lucy: I will go waste-free for a day or Liz will make sure that I walk to work.
Darwin: I should be made to bake someone a cake if I do not recycle my waste electrical.
Jane: If I don’t home compost all my kitchen and garden waste, John should make me clean the kitchen.
