Recycling champions

Do you live in Southwark? Do you have a passion for the environment? Do you want to do something positive to make a difference?

If the answer is yes, why not become a recycling champion and help us get Southwark residents recycling more?

This is a volunteer opportunity and you don’t need any experience to be a recycling champion. You just need to be over the age of 18 and willing to encourage others to recycle. There's no minimum time commitment; you can put in as much or as little time as you like. Full support and training will be provided.

Here are some things a recycling champion can do:

  • Deliver promotional recycling-focused events in the community
  • Talk to local groups about recycling
  • Distribute leaflets to promote recycling
  • Display posters on local notice boards
  • Set up an estate swap shop or green group
  • Help signpost services to others
  • Put recycling information on a community website and/or community newsletter

This volunteer scheme is run by Veolia which provides recycling and waste services for Southwark Council.
