The Big Recycling Hunt

Recycle Week 2023

12 October 2023

This week is Recycle Week 2023, and we are proud to be supporting the campaign at W&S Recycling.

As an established recycling company in the UK, we are excited to join the nation in celebrating and promoting the recycling efforts of businesses and individuals.

The event, organised by Recycle Now, a brand from the Waste and Resources Action Program (aka WRAP), will be a week where retailers, brands, waste management companies (such as ourselves), trade associations, governments and the media join forces to motivate the public to recycle more and raise awareness of what products can and can't be recycled.

The theme this year is The Big Recycling Hunt, which will focus on "missed captures", those items in the home that are commonly mistaken for general waste rather than recycling; for example, aerosols, food tins, plastic cleaning and toiletry bottles, pots, tubs and trays.
