BUSINESSES across Bromsgrove district and further afield are being urged to take up recycling services as part of a month-long campaign which began on Global Recycling Day last Friday, March 18.
It runs up until April 22 which marks Earth Day and as part of the drive, Bromsgrove District Council’s Business Waste Team will be actively encouraging more businesses to sign up for recycling services.
The team will offer two months free recycling collections to any new or existing customers who do not currently use one if they sign up before April 22.
Global Recycling Day was created in 2018 to help recognise, and celebrate, the importance recycling plays in preserving precious primary resources and securing the future of our planet. The world comes together and puts the planet first.
Everyone – from residents to businesses and Governments – are encouraged to take part.
Executive Manager for Bromsgrove Council Commercial Waste Services, Martin Roche, said: “Everyone should have the ability to do their bit for the environment – including businesses.
“We all have a responsibility and can all make a difference.”
Climate Change Portfolio Holder, Coun Michael Thompson, said: “As a council we have declared a climate emergency and it is our duty to encourage and enable everyone – whether that’s residents, businesses or visitors – to change their habits to help the environment.”
Bromsgrove District Council’s Business Waste Service provides flexible options for all businesses to fulfill their duty of care – from small bags to multiple large wheeled containers, the service is local, flexible, and designed for the customer.
The service is based in Bromsgrove but operates across Worcestershire, Warwickshire, and the West Midlands.
