Plastic recycling makes a major contribution towards a circular economy, helping to achieve a more sustainable and resource-efficient future for everyone.

Create a simple recycling system in your home.  Keep a separate container next to your rubbish bin, for the family to dispose of recyclables. Label the recycling bin to ensure materials are separated correctly.

Know which products can be recycled.

Give the recyclable plastics a quick rinse in your washing-up water before placing them in the recycling bin.  Leave the lids on bottles and flatten bottles so that they take up less space.

Put both bags out for the refuse collectors.  You have now made the collectors’ lives easier too, as they don’t have to scratch around in the refuse to find recyclables.

Now recycling is easy!
