Join Recycling Week at Brightwater Commons this September

Brightwater Commons is excited to announce its third annual Recycling Week event, scheduled to take place between the 3rd and 8th of September 2013. A fantastic opportunity for members of the community to bring their unwanted waste to be recycled in an eco-friendly manner, Recycling Week is not to be missed for those who are eager to make a valuable contribution to the preservation of our environment.

For those who are not entirely convinced that their participation in Recycling Week can really make a tangible difference, here are some pretty convincing statistics. Just one recycled glass bottle conserves enough energy to power a computer for 25 minutes and the saved energy from one recycled plastic bottle can power a 60 watt light bulb for as long as three hours. In fact, the unreleased energy contained in the average dustbin could power your television for 5000 hours.
