If you can't reduce or reuse an item, can it be recycled or, if it is organic material
like grass cuttings or food scrapings, composted? Recycling means using valuable
raw materials like glass, paper, tin and aluminium over and over again so we don't
always have to make them from scratch.
Find out about why, where and what you can recycle in South Ayrshire.

You can also donate reusable household items by calling the National Re-use phone line on 0800 0665 820. It's a free collection service and you'll be benefiting your local community and charitable organisations by supporting employment and volunteering opportunities.
