Westminster is recycling less than 20% of its waste.

We're looking for volunteer Recycling Champions who will help others in their community to waste less and recycle 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.

Why become a Recycling Champion?

Volunteering is a great way to meet people, learn new skills, do something positive in your local area to help the environment and learn more about recycling and waste reduction.

You can put in as much or as little time as you like.  Activities you can get involved in include:

  • taking part in local events
  • talking to local groups about recycling
  • displaying posters on local notice boards
  • putting on a cooking demonstration with recipe tips for using up left-overs
  • helping out at a swap shop
  • passing on the recycling message to friends and neighbours

The Recycling Team will provide you with lots of help and support, including:

  • joint visits to recycling facilities to explain the issues around contamination
  • regular newsletters
  • champion meetings and socials
  • a recycling information pack
  • training and induction
