Recycle Week 2017 theme announced

Posted on 2 August 2017

The theme for this year’s Recycle Week will be ‘Recycling – It’s Worth It!’

Announcing the theme, resource charity WRAP confirmed that Recycle Week will run from Monday 25 September to Sunday 1 October 2017.

 The organisation said that the theme will give local authorities and others “the opportunity to bust some myths and really show the benefits of recycling”.

Their research has found that different segments of the population have different reasons for not recycling or for not recycling particular materials.


A spokeswoman for WRAP told “We are trying to educate people about recycling and will try to get over a message as to what recycled materials come back as. It will be more about the cyclical nature of recycling and more about telling people why it is of benefit to them.”

WRAP have made this video about why “It’s worth it”.

Look out for their posts on social media, as they have lots planned and will be looking at ‘what goes around comes around’.
