Causeway Coast and Glens joins the Big Recycle Hunt

Now in its twentieth year, Recycle Week is the nation’s biggest annual celebration of recycling.

Recycle Week is calling on everyone in the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council to take the lead in protecting our planet.

“The Big Recycling Hunt”, the central theme of this year’s campaign, promises to shine a bright spotlight on “missed capture.” This nationwide hunt aims to engage everyone to  find ‘lost recyclables’ that too often find their way into the rubbish bin. By focusing on commonly missed items such as empty aerosols, plastic cleaning product bottles, plastic toiletry bottles, plastic pots and tubs, and food tins, Recycle Now wants to foster a deeper understanding of recycling in the younger generation. 

Recycle Week was first staged in 2004, Recycle Week is now the UK’s largest national annual recycling campaign. It’s a week where citizens, media, local governments, and brands come together to meet one goal; to galvanise everyone into recycling more of the right things, more often. 

For the past 20 yewars, Recycle Now has encouraged and motivated citizens to recycle more things, more often, from around the home. Using ground-breaking research and behaviour change science, we develop interventions and campaigns to motivate citizens to change their behaviour. Recycle Now is the citizen facing recycling campaign of climate action NGO WRAP.
