NEW COMMUNITY GRANT IN SUPPORT OF THE GOVERNMENT FUNDED RECYCLING AMBASSADOR PROGRAMME
Repak has provided a fund of €42,500 for Community grants administered by VOICE. The grants will be up to a maximum of €500 per group and are being made available to community groups to support the Recycling Ambassador Programme nationwide...
The Recycling Ambassador Programme is a VOICE initiative funded by a grant of over €300,000 by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment to help promote the Government’s new recycling list and improve Ireland’s recycling rates and reduce levels of contamination in household recycling bins.
Many of us have become confused about what can and cannot be recycled in our recycling bins.
VOICE Ireland's Recycling Ambassador Programme will show you what you can recycle in your household bin.
Everything going into the bin needs to be CLEAN, EMPTY and LOOSE
Tins & Cans
Pet Food Cans
Cleaning Product Bottles
Plastic Pots, Tubs and Trays
Paper & cardboard
Newspapers and Magazines
Milk and Juice Cartons
Toilet and Kitchen Roll Tubes
Letters and Brochures
where does it all go?
Recycling Workshops and Talks are being offered across Ireland by our Recycling Ambassadors. These are free and interactive and really help people get their recycling bin sorted.
People are hugely confused as to which bin to put their recyclables and waste. By going out into communities we can provide helpful hints on how to manage our recycling bins, reduce contamination and preserve the quality of recyclable material directly to the public. We are very excited about this hands-on approach, sending our new team of waste ambassadors into communities to tackle waste in a real way. VOICE has long pushed for this type of initiative to provide a public forum to inform how to reduce contamination of recycling. We will also be able to identify barriers households face when managing their waste. We will use the information gathered from this programme to better direct the government on how to make recycling easier for householders.”
Mindy O’Brien VOICE Coordinator
VOICE formed a whole new team to run the project.
The talks and workshops are being offered to community groups, sports associations, businesses, local agencies, farming groups, etc. We can deliver to groups of 30 or more and the demonstration can be delivered in between 15 - 60 minutes depending on time available.
