Recycle Week campaign
Dates: 21-27 September 2020
Theme: 'Thanking the nation: 'Together - We Recycle'
Now in its 17th year, Recycle Week is a celebration of recycling.
This year, the theme will thank the nation for continuing to recycle despite the challenges that COVID-19 has presented, under the banner 'Together - We Recycle'.
We want Recycle Week 2020 to recognise the sacrifices that key workers and citizens have made to keep recycling going and create positive change in the world around us. Our recycling and waste key workers have heroically carried on collecting while the world slowed down around them.
Who's getting involved?
We are also delighted to announce that major donors have already signed up and are putting their weight behind the Week.
Sainsbury’s, Ocado, Co-op, Britvic, Highland Spring, Unilever UK and Ireland, Suntory Beverage & Food GB&I, Danone, Suez, Ecosurety, PEPSICO, Reckitt Benckiser Group plc, Waitrose & Partners, Aldi and SAP will be funding activity during the week to help inspire citizens to recycle more of the right things, more often.
