Autumn Recycle Week announced by WRAP

Posted on:

The national Recycle Week will take place at the end of September

The Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP) has confirmed the return of Recycle Week in Autumn 2017; the 14th Recycle Week to be organised by WRAP and Recycle Now.

The recycling week has been set for 25 September until 1 October; an important week to be marked on the calendar for the waste and recycling industry, British councils, and the nation’s recycling organisations, who are encouraged to use the week to boost recycling efforts.

Each year, WRAP and partner campaign group, Recycle Now, choose a particular theme on which local authorities and recycling projects are encouraged to focus. Previous themes include electronic waste, plastic and cans, while last year the focus was on everyday household items that are often overlooked for recycling.

To celebrate Recycle Week, local authorities and waste firms and organisations are expected to organise recycling activities and send out householder communications to motivate the populace into recycling more.

Recycle Now said it will be focusing on delivering ‘digital content’ for the week, whilst also considering the production of printed advertisements which can be used to increase participation in the week.

Recycle Now commented: “As in previous years Recycle Now will look to provide you with lots of digital content for you to use and depending on the theme we may produce printed material to enable you to get involved as much as you can.”

The first recycling week ever to be organised in the UK was done so in 1987, however, in its current format Recycle Week has taken place on and off since 2004, when WRAP first launched the annual initiative.
