Colchester’s First Recycling & Zero Waste Event

On April 22nd Firstsite will play host to Colchester’s first Recycling & Zero Waste Event.


The event orgainised by Wivenhoe Repair Reuse Recycle CIC will have 35 exhibitors showing new innovative ways to reduce, reuse and recycle, alongside local businesses who are already leading the way. The event will also be the launch of Colchester’s very own plastic shredding scheme, a method from the Netherlands.


You will be able to find out more about the Colchester Refill Scheme, which aims to reduce single-use plastic consumption, in association with Anglia Water & Colchester Borough Council.


Bring along your old electrical goods and ask the experts how to get them working again in the Repair Cafe, plus Vintage & recycled clothing, Vegan Food from Good Souls Bakery and local artist Caravan of Curiosities with art made from recycled objects. Love Food Hate Waste and Together We Grow gardening will also be in attendance.


The event is promising to be a great day out for the whole family, lots to learn and even more to take away


It’s FREE Entry at Firstsite, Lewis Gardens, Colchester and it all starts at 10am-4pm.
