Around 50% of a typical household bin’s contents can be recycled – and another 20-30% can be composted. Yet currently around 85% of our annual household waste still ends up in landfill sites. Find out more.

By recycling waste instead of just binning it, we not only reduce the volume of material sent to landfill but also reduce the amount of energy used to manufacture new products from raw materials.

Electrical recycling

The reasons to recycle are compelling. Don’t gamble the planets future.

Businesses and householders throw away at least one million tonnes of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) in the UK each year, and annually this figure is estimated to be growing by up to 80,000 tonnes.

The recycling of electrical and electronic equipment is not currently undertaken to a sufficient extent, so the introduction of the WEEE Directive in January 2007 introduced strict legislation to address the situation. Click here for your recycling needs.
