We can help to reduce energy consumption and raw materials used in manufacturing by reducing the amount of waste we produce, re-using products, and recycling them wherever possible.

Did you know that the UK produces about 29 million tonnes (500kg per person) of domestic rubbish each year? Most of this goes into landfill sites which produces the second most important greenhouse gas, methane. If we recycle we can reduce this quantity and create a better more sustainable environment.

What can we recycle?

  • Paper
  • Glass
  • Plastics
  • Clothing
  • Aluminium Cans
  • Waste food
  • Household waste
