Recycle Week 25 September to 1 October 2017

Now in its 14th year Recycle Week is a celebration of recycling, with this year's theme being ‘Recycling – It’s Worth It!’

The strapline for the campaign will be ‘What Goes Around Comes Around’. Use this link for lots of new resources using this strapline and with a new design just for Recycle Week. Please note that the ‘What Goes Around Comes Around’ templates are embargoed until Recycle Week but you can get planning their launch now.

A FREE Best Practice tour of award-winning Lower House Farm Household Waste Recycling Centre Re-use Shop (near Tamworth) followed by the charity re-use shop at Judkins Household Waste Recycling Centre, Nuneaton. If you're keen to develop charity re-use at Household Waste Recycling Centres, this is priceless! A fringe benefit is that you'll be accompanying representatives from other organisations who are keen to emulate Warwickshire's success.

RECOUP Plastics Recycling Conference

Kingsgate Conference Centre, Peterborough

FREE places available at the RECOUP Plastics Recycling Conference on 28th September 2017 for Local Authorities, BOOK YOUR PLACE  all we ask is that if YOU cannot attend they let us know 72 hrs beforehand or  send someone in their place.

As you can see from the  programme we have Andrew Bird chairing a session aimed directly at Local Authorities and I am sure your members would find the whole conference engaging and exciting. This is a great opportunity for LARAC members.

According to recent figures from the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), fly-tipping is on the rise again, with the number of incidents up for the third year in a row. Councils across England reported 936,090 cases of fly-tipping in 2015-16, an increase of 4% on the previous year.

"LARAC was incredibly useful to learn lots of the latest information and a chance to be away from the office to reflect on ways to improve the service. A valued opportunity when times in the office can be somewhat busy. It was also a great opportunity to network with people from other services to learn their best practices and with the suppliers/agencies to learn what's available."  - 2016 attendee
