Global Recycling Day

On 18 March we celebrate Global Recycling Day. A day of unity and hope. On that day, we put the spotlight on recycling and show the world how important recycling is. Both for the living environment close to home, and for the world as a whole. By using and recycling raw materials efficiently, you contribute to a future-proof, tidy and safe living environment. With good collection and recycling, we protect the environment and climate. Every kilo of recycled waste also means CO2 saved.
