Recycling

Recycling services are improving quickly: in many places, paper, glass, aluminium (drinks and food cans), kitchen and garden waste and plastic bottles are now collected from your house, office or school just as your rubbish is collected.

Even if they aren’t, there are usually recycling banks in towns and cities where you can take them. In some areas you can even recycle plastic packaging. Clothes, shoes, old books and toys can also be recycled by giving them to a charity shop or to other people who will appreciate them. Remember, 80% of household waste is actually recyclable!

You can also help by making sure you don’t waste paper and by always using both sides of a piece of paper: why not keep a store of scrap paper from one-sided photocopies or print-outs that you don’t need any more?
