National Recycle Week 2021

National Recycle Week 2021

This year, National Recycle Week takes place from the 20th to the 26th of September.

The theme is ‘Step It Up’ – a campaign to bring together governments, retailers, trade associations, waste management companies and the media to urge the public to recycle more and recycle better.

Despite running annually for 18 years, this is only the second time that organisers, WRAP, have sought commercial funding. This year’s donors include Co-op, Amazon, Coca-Cola Great Britain, Danone, Waitrose and Ocado. WRAP say that the funding has enabled them to increase the profile and scope of the campaign immensely.

Shepley Spring are proud supporters of the Recycle Week initiative, but our support doesn’t stop there. We are also a founder signatory of the UK Plastics Pact, another WRAP initiative. The UK Plastics Pact aims to create a circular economy for plastics, by encouraging businesses, governments and NGOs to tackle their plastic waste and improve their business models to contribute to a stronger recycling system in the UK.
