Crates full of recycling

The nation’s annual celebration of recycling

Recycle Week is Recycle Now’s flagship annual event which is a celebration of recycling across the nation. It’s the one week of the year where retailers, brands, waste management companies, trade associations, governments and the media come together to achieve one goal: to galvanise the public into recycling more of the right things, more often.

2022 theme: 'Let's Get Real', This Recycle Week 19-25 September

Recycle Week is set to be a major event in the calendar this year, coming hot on the heels of last year’s campaign which was the most successful to date – with over 29 million digital impressions, and 82% of people saying they had changed their behaviour as a result of seeing Recycle Week 2021 content.

Recycle Week 2022 will be live 19-25 September. This year’s theme is ‘Let’s Get Real’ and will challenge perceptions and myths around recycling, and target contamination to improve recycling behaviours.

Our partner pack for Recycle Week 2022 which gives information on the theme and ways to get involved, is available now to download and share with colleagues – so your organisation can begin planning its own campaign activity during the week. Last year nearly 3000 individuals or partners talked about #RecycleWeek and we expect to see another big buzz around this year’s campaign.

Assets and material for Recycle Week 2022 will be available in August.

We'd love to talk to organisations about the opportunities to get involved with Recycle Week
