New Campaign Aims To Boost Recycling Across Wrexham Homes
A recycling campaign that aims to highlight the awareness of the recyclable household waste has been launched by Wrexham Council.
The “Full House” campaign encourages residents to recycle the waste from all over their home rather than concentrate on kitchen waste.
‘Full House’ aims to highlight the everyday items in all rooms can be recycled. In the bathroom recyclables include toothpaste boxes and toilet roll tubes, shampoo and shower gel bottles and in the bedroom perfume, deodorant cans and medicine bottles can all be recycled.
As part of the campaign the Council will be running several events across the county with the aim of engaging with local residents and highlighting the waste created across the home that can be recycled. Residents will also be encouraged to sign a pledge to recycle in every room of the home. A free goodie bag will be given out and there’s a chance to play the new “are you a superhero recycler?” quiz.
Recycling officers will be at the following locations during April
Wednesday, 16th April – Queens Square, Wrexham
Thursday, 17th April – Tesco, Crescent Road, Wrexham
Friday, 18th April – Tesco, Crescent Road, Wrexham
Saturday, 19th April – Eagles Meadow Shopping Centre, Wrexham
Cllr Bob Dutton, Lead member for the Environment, said: “The Full House campaign aims to raise awareness of the recyclable waste that’s created in every room of the house. We all create waste across our homes, but some of this isn’t recycled. The campaign offers an opportunity to take a fresh look at the items that can be recycled in every room of your home”.
The campaign is funded by Waste Awareness Wales and will be supported by an online interactive house, to be launched in May.
