Recycling and the National Spring Clean
Recycling is an important and integral part of National Spring Clean. Last year we achieved 35% recycle rate of all materials collected during clean-ups.
The percentage of total waste recycled by the National Spring Clean is perhaps more impressive taking into account that only bottles and cans are recycled from the waste collected during clean-up events. Other waste materials collected during clean-ups are unfortunately unsuitable for recycling due to degradation.
To make recycling easier for groups there are colour coded bags to put the different recyclable materials you collect into – these bags are provided as part of the free National Spring Clean kit provided to all groups who register.
