Hull landmarks light up green for National Recycling Week 2023 

As part of the National Recycling Week 2023, some of Hull’s most popular features will be lighting up green.  

To celebrate the campaigns 20th year, Queen Victoria Square, The Guildhall, Hull Minster and the Spurn Lightship will be illuminated green from Monday 16 October to Sunday 22 October. 

In addition, Hull City Council’s waste and recycling team is encouraging residents to recycle as much as possible during the week-long event. 

Councillor Julia Conner, Portfolio Holder for Environment, said: “It is our collective responsibility, as a city, to protect the environment and preserve it for future generations. By participating in National Recycling Week 2023, we can all make a difference and contribute to a more sustainable future. 

“We encourage all residents to participate in this event by recycling as much as possible. 

“At Hull City Council, we provide a range of services including three Household Waste and Recycling Centres and the free bulky household collection scheme. White electrical goods in working order can also be donated and/or collected free of charge for re-sale in the Reuse Electrical Shop on Hessle Road. 

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