Share your #RecycleWeek tips for a chance to win

23rd-29th September 2019

The theme for this year’s Recycle Week is  ‘It’s in your own hands.’

Share your tips for a chance to win

We would love for you to get involved by telling us how your  school or community group takes recycling into your own hands.

Share your Top 3 Tips and photos of how you recycle at school or your community venue by tweeting using @recycle4gm and using the hashtags #RecycleWeek  #InOurOwnHands or send an email to

Here’s an example:

Manchester Community School is taking recycling#InOurOwnHands by:

  1. Appointing student Recycling Officers to encourage the rest of the school to recycle correctly
  2. Having a ‘Waste-Free Lunch’ day once a month
  3. Having a ‘Create a Recycling Superhero’ competition

In return for sharing your ideas, we will enter each school/community group that send us their tips, into a prize draw.

The prize

A paid for return journey for one class/group (hire of a coach, up to the value of £500) from the location of school/community venue to either our Bolton education centre or Manchester education centre.

There are two prizes available. The prizes will be awarded to two different schools/community groups.

Please read the Terms and Conditions before you take part.
