Zero Waste Recycling Expo

Hosted by Wivenhoe Repair, Reuse, Recycle


Britain currently dumps or incinerates around 20 million tonnes of household rubbish each year. This figure is set to double. However, the principle of ‘zero waste’ states that everything we buy is, ultimately, made from materials, which can be repaired, reused or recycled.

Organised by Wivenhoe’s ‘Repair, Reuse, Recycle’ (RRR), the Zero Waste Recycling Expo is the first public event of its kind to inspire and promote the repair, reuse and recycling of all materials to a wider audience – through over 50 engaging exhibitors and local traders that have a focus on the environment.

RRR is currently working with Colchester Council to reduce the amount of white goods sent for disposal. The recycling initiative is attracting lots of interest and could potentially save the council thousands of pounds.
