Reduce, Reuse, Recycle


Recycling is not just about what you can put in your bin - we should always think about:


The best way to reduce your waste is to avoid creating it in the first place. Avoid buying items with lots of packaging as this wastes valuable resources. You throw them away and create rubbish which then produces more greenhouse gases.


Choose and invest in reusable items like keep cups, cloth bags and a reusable water bottle. Look at ways to repurpose discarded items, especially one's that can't be recycled. Consider repairing rather than replacing.


Recycling keeps usable materials out of landfill. Recycled materials can be turned back into raw materials that can be used in the manufacture of other items. Make sure you separate all recyclable items from your rubbish and put them in your recycling bin with the yellow lid.

A good recycling program will benefit us all, both now and in the future - but the first step begins at home.
