About National Recycling Week

Since 1996 National Recycling Week has been encouraging us all to focus on the environmental benefits of recycling.

National Recycling Week was started by Planet Ark as a way of promoting kerbside, industrial and community recycling initiatives and giving people the tools to minimise waste at home, work and school.
