Recycle for Wales is the national recycling campaign for Wales. Supported and funded by the Welsh Government, and adopted locally by local authorities and other partners, the campaign aims to encourage consumers to recycle more things more often from all around the home. Wales currently boasts the highest recycling rates in the UK and we want to see a continued growth through an on-going programme of engaging, inspiring and informative campaigning.
Recycle Week assets are now available for you to download and personalise for your area, brand or organisation so you can start preparing them for Recycle Week.
Please note that, apart from those counting down to Recycle Week, some of the assets are embargoed for use until Recycle Week: Monday 23 September 2019.
This collection contains Recycle for Wales 2018 campaign toolkit and all associated assets for partners for our new social norming messaging approach.
Included in this collection is a host of adaptable campaign assets which have been designed for partners to start using from Recycle Week onwards
Recycle Week 2018
24 September to 30 September 2018
Now in its 15th year Recycle Week is a celebration of recycling. The aim of the week is to encourage the public to recycle more, by demonstrating the benefits of recycling items from all around the home.
This year’s theme will be 'Recycling. We do. Because it matters.’
These resources have been refreshed to reflect Recycle for Wales's 'Good to Know' campaign and can be used on their own to support an existing food waste collection service to raise awareness of and increase participation in that service. They can also be used alongside Recycle for Wales’s existing ‘Introductory’ and ‘Instructional’ food recycling leaflets for local authorities rolling out new food recycling collections.
**Please remember to use the user guides in this collection when planning to use the Recycle for Wales food recycling campaign materials. They give details and guidance on how you can localise the resources to your area**

A collection of plastics material stream icons for use in Wales.
The Unusual Suspects artwork is an extension of the Good to Know campaign but displays a range of metal and glass items that are often overlooked for recycling. The themed resources in this collection can be edited to add/remove items to ensure they reflect the materials collected in your local collection scheme.
Recycle Week 2019
Dates: 23-29 September 2019
Theme: 'Recycling. It's in our own hands.’
Recycle Week 2019 will be full of action asking people to rinse, crush, squash, sort and separate. In the bathroom, the kitchen, the office and the great outdoors. Getting them to do something powerful and radical that will really make a difference.
