One Stop Cleaning Shop is joining The BIG Recycling Hunt.

Now in its twentieth year, Recycle Week is the nation’s biggest annual celebration of recycling.

This Recycle Week, Recycle Now are launching a fun mission for primary school children with the arrival of: The Big Recycling Hunt.

Recycle Week is calling on children aged 5 to 11 to take the lead in protecting our planet. With a week of fun activities, the campaign wants to empower the youth to become active participants in building a sustainable future.

“The Big Recycling Hunt”, the central theme of this year’s campaign, promises to shine a bright spotlight on “missed capture.” This nationwide hunt aims to engage children and families in the quest to find ‘lost recyclables’ that too often find their way into the rubbish bin. By focusing on commonly missed items such as empty aerosols, plastic cleaning product bottles, plastic toiletry bottles, plastic pots and tubs, and food tins, Recycle Now wants to foster a deeper understanding of recycling in the younger generation.


Harriet Lamb, CEO of WRAP, says: “The importance of this initiative extends beyond Recycle Week. By empowering children with the knowledge and tools to become recycling advocates, we are not only nurturing the future but also ensuring a healthier and more sustainable world for all. Join us in celebrating Recycle Week and empowering the next generation of environmental champions!”

Craig Stephens, Campaign Manager for Recycle Now, “By recycling even better we can have a big impact on our environment. In Bristol it’s no different – more and more people are recycling, so the next step is to make sure we hunt down these missed items and get our recycling right. So come on, Bristol, keep up the great work and let’s make the city’s recycling better than ever before!”

Recycling doesn’t have to be confusing.
