Recycle Week 2018 takes place from 24 to 30 September and the theme this year is celebrating the difference recycling makes when we all do it.
More and more people in Essex are recycling, but with the 2016-17 recycle rate across the Essex Waste Partnership at 53.3%, there’s still more that can be done.
