Recycle Week 2018: 24-30 September 2018

Date: 24-30 September 2018

Theme: Recycling. We do. Because it matters. 

This year, people have been motivated to care about plastics in a way they never have before.

Sustainability is firmly on the national agenda and the public is looking to organisations to help solve major environmental issues. That makes Recycle Week a greater opportunity than ever to change people’s recycling behaviours while gaining positive publicity and building your organisation’s reputation.

Now in its 15th year, Recycle Week is a celebration of recycling, organised by WRAP under the Recycle Now brand. The aim of the week is to encourage the public to recycle more, by demonstrating the benefits of recycling items from all around the home.

This year’s theme will be: ‘Recycling. We do. Because it matters.’

The theme is designed to capture attention and put across simple but important messages about why recycling matters. Partners will have the opportunity to bust myths and demonstrate why recycling is beneficial - keeping it in use, and out of our environment. Recycle Week 2018 is going to be our biggest yet! Recycle Now would love to have you involved.

Take a look at our short film and get inspired to support Recycle Week 2018. If you are an organisation and are interested in getting involved, please email: and we will get in touch with you to discuss how we can work together.
