Recycle Week 2020
Recycle Week 2020
The week starting 21 September is a big one for the United Kingdom as it marks the start of a week of determined effort to reduce, recycle and reuse during Recycle Week 2020. Here at UKVending we are determined to reduce the amount of throw away plastics and we’ve taken lots of moves to reduce our impact on the environment. Recycle Week 2020 is this year more important than ever.
But what can we do to help?
Date: 21-27 September 2020
This year’s theme is: ‘Thanking the nation: ‘Together – We Recycle’
Now in its 17th year, Recycle Week is a celebration of recycling, organised by WRAP under the Recycle Now brand.
This year, the theme will thank the nation for continuing to recycle despite the challenges that COVID-19 has presented, under the banner ‘Together – We Recycle’.
We want Recycle Week 2020 to recognise the sacrifices that key workers and citizens have made to keep recycling going and create positive change in the world around us. Our recycling and waste key workers have heroically carried on collecting while the world slowed down around them.
Who’s getting involved?
We are also delighted to announce that major donors have already signed up and are putting their weight behind the Week. Sainsbury’s, Ocado, Co-op, Britvic, Highland Spring, Unilever UK and Ireland, Lucozade Ribena Suntory and Danone will be funding activity during the week to help inspire citizens to recycle more of the right things, more often.
The organisers of Recycle Week 2020 would love to get more donors on board! If you’d like to find out more information about how to become a donor, please contact: PartnerEnquiries@wrap.org.uk.

Building on last year
In 2019, Recycle Week reached a whopping 16 million people on digital channels alone including an inspirational collaboration with LADbible. An impressive 91 per cent of people who saw the campaign said they recycled more than in the previous year.
