Think resource not waste

The inaugural Global Recycling Day takes place on 18 March.

A number of events are planned worldwide as part of the  programme, including a ‘public clean-up campaign’ in Johannesburg. Organised by the Bureau for International Recycling (BIR), it is a day people are being urged to start thinking ‘resource’ rather than ‘waste’ when it comes to recycling.

“The world’s first Global Recycling Day is a vitally important new date in our global calendar. To truly harness the power of recycling we must adopt a global approach to its collection, processing and use. It is time we put the planet first and all commit to spend 10 more minutes a day ensuring that materials are disposed of properly. It is a joint responsibility, not one of the few and I look forward to seeing individuals, communities, businesses and leaders joining us and celebrating the day on 18 March,” said Ranjit Baxi, BIR President.
