Look out for the new yellow recycling bins in Ashford Town Centre! It's all part of an exciting campaign called #InTheLoop, which aims to improve recycling on-the-go.
The initiative is a partnership between Ashford Borough Council, Kent Resource Partnership, Kent County Council, Litter Lotto, metroSTOR and N+P (dry & mixed recycling processors in Kent), supported by Hubbub and McDonald’s
Look out for the 9 eye-catching bins located across Ashford Town Centre encouraging us all to recycle plastic bottles, glass bottles and cans while out and about
The dual recycling and rubbish bins will collect empty glass and plastic bottles and cans, so these valuable materials can be made into something new instead of going to waste.

The monthly £200 jackpot prize and coins will be available from September to November 2023. For more information head to their website.
Made in Ashford’s Craftship Enterprise will be running three workshops to show how we can re-use materials and put them back #InTheLoop.
The first workshop is taking place this Saturday 9 September, where visitors will have the chance to add to the living wall art installation made of plastic bottles, which will be displayed in a shop window. Find out more about these workshops at www.madeinashford.com
