Waste Awareness Week Monday 20 - Friday 24 March.

Following the success of our first Waste Awareness Week in 2022, from Monday 20 - Friday 24 March 2023 we bring you more opportunities to learn about waste and recycling, win prizes, get involved, and have fun!

Join us for a series of fantastic events, to learn more about what happens to your waste and the importance of recycling. Events include BCU’s first ever Common-Waste Games!

You can also meet our waste partners to understand how our waste can be turned into a resource and enter quizzes to win prizes such as an Echo Dot. There are also opportunities to get involved with a litter pick and Waste Sort and Segregate Session.
