It’s Recycle Week
We are raising awareness of Recycle Week, to help encourage others to take part and learn more about the benefits this brings to the environment.
This year the campaign will take place between 16th-22nd October 2023 and it focuses on “missed capture”, the items that can be recycled but are commonly missed in the home.
Do you know what you can recycle?
There’s so much you can easily recycle whether its via your weekly kerbside waste collection, at the local tip or even at the supermarket.
Local community waste recycling sites take many unusual and larger items that can’t go in your household recycling. Enter your postcode in Recycle Now’s Recycling Locator to find out where and how to recycle specific items such as mobile phones, computers, textiles, food wrapping, plastic bags, cosmetics, batteries, light bulbs and paint, and so much more.
Did you know, in North Lincolnshire you can put small electrical items out with your green bin? Don’t live in North Lincs, check out your local council’s website as you may be surprised about what they will take away from your door-step.
More and more people recycle every day. This helps to reduce the need for landfill and more costly forms of disposal.
Recycling also reduces the need for extracting (mining, quarrying and logging), refining and processing raw materials, all of which create substantial air and water pollution. This helps to save energy, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and helping to tackle climate change.
As part of our work with Elgia, our waste management contractors, 100% of our rubbish is diverted from landfill.
