Recycling household waste help, how to recycle, reuse and reduce, plus information about general waste management.
Reduce, reuse, recycle is now the mantra that many people abide by and almost anything can be subject to this treatment. Local Councils now have an obligation to dramatically cut down on the sheer volume of refuse that ends up in their civic amenity sites.
Consequently, most of us will now be familiar with a separate bin which must be used for waste items that can be recycled. Commonly, plastics, glass and paper items are taken away at least fortnightly where they are recycled and put to use in other items.
It makes sense to recycle as it saves energy in the longer term. This is a very important notion to remember because the world is fast heading for an energy crisis due to fossil fuels being used up. We all need to play our part in conserving energy and reducing waste. This applies to businesses as well as the individual at home.
Our information and useful guides have been written to help anyone interested in making a difference to the world and help nurture our planet.
