He shoots, he scores… into the recycling bin!
If you are celebrating the World Cup with a few cans, be sure to recycle them!
Recycling Week 2014 runs from the 16th – 22nd June, with the World Cup England vs Uruguay match in the middle of Recycling Week on the 19th June.
We’re sure that you will be celebrating the World Cup with food, drinks and friends. So, be your own referee and remember to recycle those extra paper plates, bottles and cans in your local kerbside recycling scheme.
Throughout Recycling Week, Northamptonshire’s Recycling Officers will be umpiring across the county to support residents with recycling both at home and away during the start of the World Cup season.

Cllr Chris Millar, Chair of the Northamptonshire Waste Partnership said:
“Recycle Week is a great opportunity to remind the residents of Northamptonshire of the array of rubbish that they can now recycle in the county. Glass, cans, paper, card, cartons, plastics, batteries and many more can all be put back into use rather than being landfilled. During the week Officers will be out and about across the county attending events with information and advice on how to recycle your rubbish and all of this information is also available on our website - http://www.recyclefornorthamptonshire.gov.uk.”

Tips for recycling at home and away:
• Recycle bottles and cans: A current football shirt worn by the England team is made from 100% recycled polyester, which comes from an average of 18 recycled plastic bottles. Your plastic bottle could soon be worn by your football idol if you recycle!
• Take unwanted football shirts to recycle banks or local charity shops or send them to charities like Football 4 Africa and Kits 4 Causes who pass donated football strips on to those in need
