Have a ghoulish and green Halloween


Halloween recycling (large version)

Joining in with the spirit of Halloween, our recycling officers will be attending the Bedlam & Broomsticks event at Nothe Fort, Weymouth tomorrow (Tuesday 26 October) from 10.30am.

A great day of spooky fun for all the family, we’ve organised plenty of themed reuse and recycling related activities for children, so stop by our stand and have a go. Activities include Halloween grass heads and badge making, plus lots more.

Our recycling officers will be available to chat to you about any recycling issues or waste reduction campaigns. The stand will also be packed with lots of useful information from stopping food waste to home composting, so we hope to see you there!

Don’t be frightened to recycle this Halloween. Here are three top ‘tricks’ to scare your family and friends but ‘treat’ the environment:

  • Going to a Halloween party? Why not get creative and make your own costume out of recycled materials or visit the local charity shop and see what they’ve got on offer that you can utilise
  • Making a lantern? Don’t for get pumpkin leftovers can be used to make shockingly good recipes such as roast pumpkin lasagne or pumpkin tart, visit the Love Food Hate Waste website (opens in a new window) for more
  • Save your fancy dress costume and reuse it next year or recycle as much of it and any Halloween decorations as possible. Remember pumpkin leftovers can be composted

Let us know if you have any scary tips to help recycle this Halloween!
