A CAMPAIGN aiming to boost recycling figures has been launched.
The Full House campaign, launched by Wrexham Council, highlights the awareness of the recyclable waste created in every room of the home.
Residents are now being encouraged to recycle waste from all over their home rather than concentrate on kitchen waste.
The campaign hopes to inform people about everyday items suitable for recycling, including toothpaste boxes, toilet roll tubes, shampoo and shower gel bottles and in the bedroom perfume, deodorant cans and medicine bottles.
As part of the campaign, the council will be running events across the county to engage with residents who will be encouraged to sign a pledge to recycle in every room of the home. Free goodie bags will be given out and there will be an ‘are you a superhero recycler?’ quiz.
Cllr Bob Dutton, lead member for environment, said: “The Full House campaign aims to raise awareness of the recyclable waste that is created in every room of the house.
“We all create waste across our homes, but some of this isn’t recycled. The campaign offers an opportunity to take a fresh look at the items that can be recycled in every room of your home.”
The campaign is funded by Waste Awareness Wales, supported by an online interactive house, to be launched in May. For more details visit wasteawarenesswales.org.uk/fullhouse
