The BIG Recycle for Scotland 2006
Make Recycling Your Goal

The BIG Recycle for Scotland is a national initiative to encourage people to recycle more household waste. This year’s campaign launched on Monday 5 June 2006.

The campaign, now in its third year, is designed to encourage everyone to recycle more of their household waste – from glass and cans to garden waste and paper – by letting you know what, how and where you can recycle.

qualify for the tournament, the World Cup was a great time to be thinking about recycling since the amount of waste we produce shoots up during major sporting tournaments.

ITV football presenter Gabby Logan and actor and impressionist Alistair McGowan are among the famous faces that backed the campaign, to make a BIG impact this summer.

Gabby Logan said:

“I’m thrilled to be supporting the BIG recycle, because my family and I are already keen recyclers. We always use our council’s doorstep collection service, and try to shop sensibly to buy recycled or recyclable goods and packaging. It’s easy to get into the habit, and it makes a lot of environmental sense.

“Given that we generate even more waste than usual during a major sporting tournament, I think the World Cup is a great time to remind people to do their bit I hope everyone will make recycling their goal this summer.”

The BIG Recycle for Scotland also had the support of the world famous Tartan Army, who encouraged Scottish fans to make recycling their goal during the World Cup and beyond.
