Love your planet

Let’s recycle so we have less waste

by THT | 02/09/18

Each UK household produces around 1 tonne of rubbish every year.  

The amount of rubbish we throw away is increasing due to things like lifestyle changes and an increasing population.

To protect our planet for our children, we need to increase the amount of rubbish that is recycled because we cannot continue to landfill or burn it forever.

 

Here are our tips for recycling at home:

  • Recycling is easy if you have a place to store recycling, such as a bag, a box or a bin. Keep this container next to your rubbish bin so it’s as easy to recycle as it is to throw away
  • Flatten your packaging when you put them in the recycling
  • Don’t throw away plastic bottles, from mouthwash to drink bottles
  • You can recycle your newspapers, envelopes, wrapping paper and birthday cards
  • Most metallic items are recyclable – cans, tins and kitchen foil can be recycled
  • Rinse out food containers, bottles or jars before you add them to your recycling bin
  • Get into the habit of recycling every day, so you don’t have a mad panic the night before the bins are due to be emptied
  • Prevention is better than cure! Think about what you’re buying, what you’re using and what you’re throwing away
