Basildon Council supported Recycle Now's Recycle Week with the following events. Each year, Recycle Now encourages the nation to get involved with its increasingly popular Recycle Week campaign, by taking part in national and local events to celebrate the fact that more and more of us are recycling.
Monday 23 and Friday 27 - We held two Twitter Takeovers to give residents an opportunity to discuss their recycling and re-use or flytipping and littering concerns live on twitter with our Waste Management Officer. See Basildon Council on twitter
Monday 23 - Saturday 28 September - As part of the Basildon at 70 event taking place in the Towngate Theatre throughout the week, a local artist from the area combined art with flytipping and littering to raise awareness of this issue.
Friday 27 September - We ran 'We're Cleaning Up' campaign litter picks with the Wickford Wombles and the Abacus Primary School. Primary school children were provided with smaller sized litter pickers, hi-vis jackets and 'We're Cleaning Up' goody bags.
Tuesday 1 October - We ran the second of our school litter picks with Greensted Junior School in Basildon. They were provided with smaller sized litter pickers, hi-vis jackets and 'We're Cleaning Up' goody bags.
By reducing your waste and recycling more, you can do your bit to lower and avoid the potential consequences of flytipping and littering across the borough.
If you are a community group, school, business or individual and would like to support the campaign by organising a litter blitz please get in touch, see contact details bottom of page.
