National Recycling Week

News Update 13 November 2017

National Recycling Week runs from 13 -19 November. 

In November 1996, Planet Ark founded National Recycling Week to bring a national focus to the environmental benefits of recycling. Now in its 22nd year, this established and highly regarded annual campaign continues to educate and stimulate behaviour change, by:

• Promoting kerbside, industrial and community recycling initiatives
• Giving people the tools to minimise waste and manage material resources responsibly at home, work and school. 

The City’s Recycling Centre offers a range of services for residents including free recycling of e-waste, scrap metal, cardboard, uncontaminated used motor oil, fluorescent lights, household and vehicle batteries and polystyrene.

The Recycling Centre has free garden recycling bags for residents. Fill the bags with green waste or recyclable material and drop them back at the Centre, free of charge.

Once collected, these materials are shredded and composted into garden mulch
which is also free for residents.

The bags can be used for collecting up to 120 litres of mulch.

Limited supply available, two per resident until stocks last only, not for commercial operators.
