The fountains in Queen Victoria Square.

See Hull landmarks lit up for Recycling Week 2019

As part of the national Recycling Week 2019, some of Hull most popular features will be lit up in bright green.

It will see the fountains in Queen Victoria Square, Hull City Hall, Ferens Art Gallery, Hull New Theatre, The Guildhall and Essex House illuminated from Tuesday 24 to Sunday 30 September.

Hull City Council’s waste and recycling team will be at locations across the city to advise members of the public on how they can do their bit for the planet by rinsing, crushing, squashing, sorting and separating recyclable products from the bathroom, the kitchen, the office and the great outdoors.

The team will be at:

  • Portobello Methodist Church 10am-12pm on Monday 23 September
  • Asda Kingswood 10am-1pm on Tuesday 24 September
  • Morrisons Holderness Road 10am-1pm Wednesday 25 September
  • Asda Hessle Road 10am-1pm Thursday 26 September
  • Tesco Hall Road 10am-1pm Friday 27 September
  • Bean Street car park 11am-4pm on Saturday 28 September

A community action day in Homethorpe, Orchard Park, will take place on Friday 27 September at 11am, when residents can join area housing teams, grounds maintenance teams, Humberside Police, Humberside Fire & Rescue and Riverside Housing to carry out litter picking and bulb planting.

Councillor Anita Harrison, portfolio holder for waste and recycling, said: “In Hull, we have a good track record for recycling and I would like to thank those residents that make the effort to ensure they recycle correctly.

“At Hull City Council, we provide a range of services including three Household Waste and Recycling Centres, and every household is entitled to one free bulky item collection a year of up to five items.

“Not only is recycling good for the environment, your city and your fellow residents, but by playing your part, you are helping us to save hundreds of thousands of pounds per year, money that can be used to boost your local economy and protect other council services that your community relies on.”
