PRESS RELEASE

This is the year the people of Bracknell Forest, Reading and Wokingham Boroughs are ‘taking recycling into their own hands’!

The influential TV programme, “Our Planet” by Sir David Attenborough, arguably kick-started a new era of environmental awareness. Recent year, has been supported by peaceful awareness raising, by people all over the World, with 16-year old Greta Thunberg at the forefront. Awareness seems to be leading to action and recent research from Recycle Now reveals that over 60% of UK households are now recycling more than they were a year ago because of environmental concerns.

One of the most important practices that help to reduce greenhouse emissions is waste prevention and recycling and thanks to the enhancement to the service residents across re3 can now do even more in the fight against climate change, from our homes.

Introduction of plastic pots, tubs and trays recycling was very well received and the re3 Partnership noted a significant - almost 60% increase of plastic recycling compared to last year. re3 residents can also feel reassured about the journey of plastic collected from their doorstep as current re3 arrangements allow to exclusively process plastic in the UK.

Recycling decreases the need to extract virgin resources from forests, oil reserves and mines to make products and packaging. This means less energy is consumed to manufacture and transport products and their packaging. As a result, less carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions are generated. The bottom line is: with every item you recycle or reuse, you help reduce greenhouse gases and protect the climate.

Top tips for recycling in Bracknell, Reading and Wokingham:


  • Recycle more of these items:  fruit punnets, meat trays, yoghurt pots, plastic milk bottles, shampoo bottles, aerosols or foil trays;
  • Make sure these never go in the recycling bin/box: bagged waste, carrier bags, glass, black plastic trays.
  • Remember to recycle your glass and textiles at the recycling banks located near parks and supermarkets.
