Recycling should be a year-round thing

Council bosses in South Tyneside are attempting to highlight the benefits of behaving in a more eco-friendly manner, according to the Shields Gazette.

In news that may inspire some to consider recycling mobile phones, it is noted more facilities are to be made available to people to ensure they can easily get their unwanted items reused.

Councillor Barrie Scorer, who works in the field of environment and transport, said it was important for people to realise that Recycle Week was something that should encourage greener practices the whole year through.

"[It] is a great time to remind residents how important recycling is, how easy it is to do and also to have a bit of fun doing it," he explained. "It's something that helps save the environment and also helps people save money."

Elsewhere, Charlotte Whitwell of worldwide conservation organisation Fauna & Flora International said recently schoolchildren should act as mobile recycling representatives to encourage people to get involved.
