Recycle Week 2017

Recycle Week is running from 25 September to 1 October 2017. Now in its 14th year, Recycle Week is run by WRAP, the Waste and Resources Action Programme, to raise awareness of the importance of recycling and to encourage people to recycle more.

This year’s theme is ‘Recycling – It’s Worth It!’. Recent research by WRAP uncovered people’s different reasons for not recycling, or not recycling particular materials, so Recycle Week 2017 has been developed to encourage greater participation in recycling efforts.

Recycle Week 2017 emphasises the idea that ‘What goes around comes around’, promoting resource efficiency.
