Calling all recyclers – we want to hear from you.

How do you do it in your home/school/workplace?

We need all kinds of resident recyclers to star in our campaign in 2017. Instead of using generic pictures, we want real Bath and North East Somerset residents! We want you to show us how you recycle, to encourage others to recycle more, and to help them get ready for the change to every other week rubbish collections starting in November.

We want your stories, photos, videos and recycling tips to share with others and are keen to hear from individuals and groups – including schools, families, housemates, work groups – how do you do it in your home/school/workplace?

We want to use your photos and stories mainly for our social media campaign.

Want to get involved and make a difference?


1. Send your photos/stories/tips/videos to us at  and let us know how you do your recycling - is there anything unusual about how you do it where you live, who organises it in your house, how do you use your food recycling bin, how do your kids get involved, and we’d love to hear about practical tips you can share to make it easier. If you have a fun way to recycle or a humorous tale to tell please also get in touch -we welcome creative ideas.

You can see some food recycling stories here for ideas


2. Email us at  to nominate recycling star(s) – people you know who we could contact for a brief interview and to take some photos. Please check that your nominee is happy to be contacted for this campaign - if so, please provide the name, contact number and email address for your nominee and explain briefly why you are nominating them. We are pleased to be working in partnership with students at Bath Studio School for this campaign, so we may be passing on the contact details you provide so that the students can contact you/your nominee to arrange a short interview and to take photographs/videos.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Your personal information will only be used in connection with the Bath & North East Somerset Council’s 2017 recycling and waste campaign and may be passed on to Bath Studio School who are interviewing and photographing residents for use in some of the campaign.  Your information will not be shared with any other third party without your consent, except where required by law. The Council and Bath Studio School will not keep your personal information for longer than is necessary but in any event no longer than 18 months.
