Recycle Week 2013 is coming soon

Recycle Week is a celebration of everything about recycling, and offers you a chance to get involved and highlight the significant benefits and opportunities associated with recycling.

With this year’s theme ‘Recycling at home and away …’  Recycle Week is a fantastic opportunity for you to:

raise awareness of your recycling activities
launch new initiatives and
boost your recycling capture rate

Recycle Week is now in its third year in Scotland, and is organised by Zero Waste Scotland using Recycle for Scotland. It is supported and delivered by a range of partners across the country.  As part of the anniversary celebrations, Zero Waste Scotland will be looking at: 

Just how far we’ve come
Why recycling is so important
What we can recycle now compared to ten years ago
What happens to our recycling?
What more we can all do to ensure good quality materials are collected and contamination is reduced

Look out for further information from Zero Waste Scotland in the next few weeks, when there will be free resources to help you make the most of Recycle Week.
