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?

You don’t need any experience to be a Recycling Champion, you just need to be over 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
