Recycling champions

Can you help?

We’re looking for people to become volunteer recycling champions and help others to recycle more and waste less. You can register at the bottom of this page.

Being a recycling champion is all about encouraging your neighbours, friends, family and colleagues to reduce, reuse and recycle.

It’s a great way to meet new people, make a positive difference in your community and even learn new skills.

Anyone who is over 18 and is interested about recycling and environmental issues can become a recycling champion - you don’t need any specialist knowledge, just be enthusiastic and willing to speak to other people.

All you have to do is attend a briefing meeting which will last approximately an hour, put large stickers on the side of your bins which will say ‘Ask me about recycling’, be prepared to answer any queries your neighbours may have or get in touch with the Council on their behalf to find out more.

You will receive:

  • Informal training
  • Bin stickers to put on the side of your recycling wheelie bin
  • Annual thank you event
  • Stay connected monthly newsletter
  • Access to extra information or promotions
  • Up-to-date information before anyone else

At the informal training you will also be asked to let us know if you are also prepared to:

  • Share information with any groups they are involved in such as faith organisations, voluntary groups and parish councils
  • Give talks to local groups
  • Proactively distribute information in their local area
  • Assist at local events/road shows
  • Give feedback about what is working well or not
