National Recycle Week

20th Sep - 27th Sep

The Mall Maidstone and Countrystyle Recycling have partnered together to promote recycling.  As such, we are excited to welcome Countrystyle to The Mall Maidstone during “National Recycle Week” which starts on 20th September.  They will help simplify recycling, explain how recycling can make an impact and why reducing waste is an important step in protecting the environment.  Let’s Driving Sustainable Recycling Together.

Since 2018, Countrystyle has helped The Mall save 794 tonnes of non-recyclable waste from going to Landfill*. This is equivalent to the weight of:

Recycle Week is “Recycle Now’s” flagship annual event which is a celebration of recycling across the nation. Now in its 18th year, it’s the one week of the year where retailers, brands, waste management companies, trade associations, governments and the media come together to achieve one goal: to educate the public to recycle more of the right things, more often.

The country was turned green in 2020 as iconic landmarks across England and Northern Ireland were lit up to outwardly demonstrate their support of Recycle Week. These included the London Eye, The Blackpool Tower, Gateshead Millennium Bridge, Belfast City Hall and Enniskillen Castle, among many others. The City of London’s Tower 42 proudly displayed the Recycle Now ‘swoosh’ for the whole week. This year’s theme: Step it up this Recycle Week
