"Global Recycling Day is a reminder to us all of the difference we can make to protect our environment by disposing of our rubbish responsibly and is an opportunity to make sure that we are recycling all that we can.” Dr Thérèse Coffey MP, Under Secretary of State at DEFRA
"Global Recycling Day emphasizes the urgency of increasing the scale, quality and legitimacy of recycling: a critical environmental service to capture and process this material in a way that is equitable, efficient, and safe.” Dr Yaakov Garb, Lecturer, Ben Gurion University of the Negev
“Recycling waste is the first step in closing resource loop. Currently what is seen as ‘waste’ can be reformed into a resource for green manufacturing, therefore creating environmental, social and economic value. This event is fantastic in raising awareness about what is the right thing to do in the face of the mounting waste challenge.” Scientia Professor Veena Sahajwalla, Director of the Centre for Sustainable Materials Research & Technology

About Global Recycling Day

Every year, the earth yields billions of tons of natural resources to transform into consumables. At some point, there will be nothing left. That’s why we must, as a planet, think again about what we throw away – seeing not waste, but opportunity.

On 18 March 2018, people around the world will come together for the first ever Global Recycling Day. Global Recycling day aims to secure the future of our planet by conserving the world’s six primary resources and celebrating the power of the Seventh Resource – the goods all around us that we reuse and recycle every day.

It's time to treat our waste as the seventh resource for our planet. To complete the material cycle, to turn waste in to resource, is our collective and ultimate goal!
