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.

  • Recycle your glass jars, bottles, aluminium cans, newspapers, plastic bottles, tin cans and clothes

Benefits of recycling include:

  • Cutting down the amount of material we use
  • Reducing transport movements and air pollution
  • Landfilling less of our waste
  • Reducing energy consumption from making new materials
  • Creating new jobs from recycling initiatives
  • Encouraging people and businesses to take more responsibility for the waste they produce
  • Improving competitiveness as businesses use their materials more efficiently
