Recycling, Stockport does it because it matters

As part of this week’s National Recycle Week we would like to thank Stockport residents for doing their bit for the environment by recycling even more.

Recycling, Stockport does it because it matters

National Recycle Week fits perfectly with the Council’s We Love Stockport – Be Proud of Where You Live environmental campaign, which has seen residents across Stockport join forces to raise awareness and offer hints and tips about recycling.

In particular, Werneth High School has been helping to spread the word about the importance of recycling whilst out and about and reminding residents you can continue to recycle even when you are at school or in the office. You may see their hints and tips in advertising across Stockport.

Cllr Sheila Bailey, Stockport Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities and Housing, said: “It is fantastic to see how many community groups, schools, businesses and residents have embraced our We Love Stockport campaign.

“Recycling is an important element of our campaign so it is great to join forces with National Recycle Week to not only to thank residents for already doing their bit, but to remind them we can always do that little bit more.”

During Recycle Week, officers from Recycle for Greater Manchester and Stockport Council will be at Stockport’s Co-op Food store on Wellington Road answering any questions and offering top recycling tips and advice.
