Recycle Week 2023 - Coming Soon

This year Recycle Week is celebrating its 20th anniversary and will be inspiring children, families and whole communities to get involved in The Big Recycling Hunt.

At the Organic Trade Board, we are happy to share that Arla Foods, is an official sponsor of the Recycle Week 2023.

The Big Recycling Hunt focuses on “missed capture”– items that can be recycled but are commonly missed in the home.

“This year’s campaign will be bigger and better than ever. We want to bring an element of fun to recycling with a focus on the people who are going to be impacted the greatest if we don’t up our game – children. This year we’ll be reaching out to more than 30,000 schools and teachers to get children involved in The Big Recycling Hunt, with a special toolkit and resources available to help them get involved”.

The campaign will ensure people know that there are more items that they can recycle by highlighting some of the most commonly missed captured items, including: -

  • Plastic pots, tubs and trays
  • Plastic detergent/cleaning bottles
  • Shampoo/conditioner bottles
  • Aerosols
  • Food cans/tins
