Recycle Week – play your part! 26 September 2017

Monday marked the beginning of national ‘Recycle Week’ and the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs is encouraging everyone in Northern Ireland to help the environment by recycling more material (via DAERA)

 

DAERA

‘Recycle Week’, which runs from 25 September to 01 October, is delivered by the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) NI and supported by DAERA. This year the focus of the campaign in Northern Ireland is the recycling of food waste.

Chief Executive of the Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA), David Small, launched ‘Recycle Week’ at Woodvale Community gardens by promoting the benefits to the environment of compost produced directly from the recycling of food waste.  

He said: “Food waste makes up a significant proportion of the household waste we throw out each week, with over 70% of the food waste dumped in landfills coming from households. However, making the effort to recycle this food waste will greatly contribute to improving the environment, supporting the economy and creating jobs in Northern Ireland.

“It is great to see locally produced compost from recycled food waste being used within our local parks and Community Gardens. The compost is keeping them in tip top condition for the growth of flowers, fruit and vegetables. Recycling food waste really does make a difference.”

David Small emphasised the need for more households to make use of their kerbside recycling services which are provided by local councils.
