Residents asked to ‘step it up’ and fight climate change this Recycle Week
Recycle Now and Shropshire Council are asking residents to ‘step it up’ and recycle more in the fight against climate change.
The call comes to make the start of national Recycle Week 2021 (20 – 26 September).
Craig Stephens, Campaign Manager for Recycle Now, said:
“This year we’re focussed on how recycling can help fight climate change and how by recycling even better we can have a bigger impact on our environment. Here in Shropshire it’s no different – more and more of us are recycling, so the next step is to make sure we get our recycling right. So come on, Shropshire, keep up the great work and let’s make the county’s recycling better than ever before!”
Ian Nellins, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for climate change, natural assets and the green economy, said:
“Every plastic bottle, glass jar, metal can or piece of cardboard placed in the correct recycling container will help us to fight climate change.
“Recycling, rather than littering, will also make a huge difference to the environment in Shropshire.
“Shropshire residents are generally very good at recycling, but we could all do better and the introduction of a third bin for mixed recycling next year will help us all to recycle more. Recycle Week is a great opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of recycling and should set Shropshire residents up well for future recycling in their new bin.”
