World Environment Day — Real heroes reduce, reuse, recycle!

Today (Monday) is World Environment Day.  

Will you join us in continuing to be a reduce, reuse, recycle force for good and make a difference to our planet?    

That’s the message behind the Isle of Wight Council’s recycling superhero campaign launching today. 

The Isle of Wight is already an Island of recyclers but reducing waste is an important way to help protect the environment.

You can reduce waste by buying less and only what you need, avoiding single-use items, and using refillable containers. 

Reusing items is also important and can be done by donating good but used items or finding creative ways to repurpose them.  

Finally, recycling can help reduce waste by separating materials into categories that can be reused or repurposed. By practicing the 3Rs — reduce, reuse, and recycle — we can all help make the world a healthier and greener place. 

Did you know that we can visit local schools and community groups such as scouts, brownies and local WI groups to give a presentation about all things recycling and waste?  

We also run a Community Waste Forum where you can keep up to date with the latest development in waste and recycling on the Island.  

If you would be interested in either of these, please contact: for more information.
