Recycle week 2018 starts today and the aim is to make us aware of the importance of recycling. We are taking part in a significant way.
NEW BIN STICKERS
You may have noticed a sticker on your recycling bin lid, placed on by our refuse teams. These stickers are designed to help you know what goes in your recycling bin. For more information please see our waste and recycling page here
Our new recycling video will show you what you can recycle and why we need your help to recycle and protect the environment for future generations.
Check the video out here.
Single use plastic
Single use plastic may have a temporary advantage of being useful but a long term disadvantage to our environment. Single use plastics are not recyclable, hence why they are called single use. They are damaging the planet’s environment.
- Use a refillable water bottle.
- Use a reusable coffee cup
- Avoid using plastic straws unless you need to
- Take reusable bags for your shopping
- Use your own cutlery or sustainable alternatives.
- Refuse single-use condiment sachets.
- Buy fruit and vegetables without plastic wrappers.
Look out for our new recycle banners in our future ‘Email Me’ Bulletins!
