If you have been recycling for a while you will know how satisfying it is when you see how little you actually put into your household waste bin and how much you are putting in your recycling bin in comparison.
There are still individuals and organisations in the UK who are not recycling or they are not recycling enough. Although recycling might seem like a rather daunting prospect on the face of it, in actual fact recycling is very easy and can be undertaken without much effort at all.
Once you have separated and sorted your recycling, it is then the responsibility of the waste management company to ensure that the recycling is collected and disposed of in the correct manner. Most recycling is taken to a specific plant where it is sorted again and is cleaned so that it does not harm anybody that comes into contact with it. It is then sent on its journey to becoming something entirely different.
Recycling can be hugely rewarding, particularly when it is really noticeable that you are throwing away far less rubbish to be sent to a landfill site where it will sit for a number of years rotting away.
