Rugby club hope to help convert Bath residents into recyclers

Bath and North East Somerset Council has teamed up with Bath Rugby Club to encourage its residents to give recycling a try.

Bath rugby players give recycling a try


Players from Bath’s famous rugby club have been photographed with rugby balls made from various recycled materials to help promote the council’s latest recycling campaign, which will use the tag-line: ‘Recycling. It’s worth a try!’

Bath and North East Somerset Council waste campaigns officer Sarah Raban said she hoped the campaign would “appeal to an audience who are hard-to-reach by traditional methods”.

She said the rugby club had been “really supportive” of the campaign, and the partnership offered the council a real opportunity to deliver the recycling message in a new way.

Bath rugby club community co-ordinator Pam Burke said: “The club itself is committed to recycling and already recycles all its glass bottles and is striving to recycle more.” She added that the club was interested in discussing ways of disposing of its cardboard and paper in an environmentally friendly way.
