Get Involved In The Community
Councils and community groups have always played a central role in Planet Ark's National Recycling Week (NRW). Both provide much of the on-the-ground, community-level recycling education and services, making them a fundamental element in the success of NRW.
Councils can refer to the council hub for all the ways you can promote National Recycling Week to your residents.Register A Public Event
