Ok, so yes sometimes we just can’t avoid using plastic so why not learn how to recycle it properly!

Have you ever wondered if you can recycle a specific item?

Want to learn how to make the most out of your household waste and recycling collection?

Come along on Sunday 28th Oct for a morning of planet-saving advice and papermaking fun from industry experts!

This is a hands-on paper-making experience with informal recycling information to help you get the most out of your local household waste and recycling collection.  Learn why certain items can and cannot go into the recycling collection, bust a few 'myths' about recycling and find out about the bigger picture.

All equipment provided just bring an open mind, enthusiasm and questions.  

If you want to bring an unusual item of household rubbish to find out whether it can or cannot be recycled then please do so.

We'll answer your questions or we'll find someone who can!

  • Where the recycling (and general waste) goes after being collected from Southend's households,

  • Unusual things you didn't know you could recycle,

  • Why collections are different in different council areas,

  • How we can all help the recycling process,

  • What to do if things go wrong with your collections,

  • A video or 2 of recycling processing

* * * If booking for more than one person, please call us on 01702 597115 Do not book via website or the second person will not appear on the roster. * *
