Recycle Week 2018

By using Waste Management Service, First Mile, our BID members have managed to make valuable changes to the environment

Recycle Now's Recycle Week 2018 is the national recycling campaign for England, supported and funded by Government, managed by WRAP and used locally by over 90% of English authorities.

One of WeAreWaterloo's services open to all BID members is a free and discounted waste and recycling scheme, via First Mile. We thought we would share some key stats with you to demonstrate how Waterloo businesses are tackling pollution and making our planet a better place through recycling. 

In the last 12 months our BID recycling scheme has:

  • Saved 10,979 trees
  • Saved 1,688 tonnes of CO2 emissions

Recycled 1,706,380 kg of materials including (but not limited to):

  • 208,000 kg of cardboard
  • 933,825kg mixed recycling
  • 145,026 kg food
  • 533,410kg glass

If you would like any more information on the recycling service, or to check your allocation of recycling bags, simply contact Alex via email to discuss.
