If you want to do a little more for the environment but you don’t quite know where to start, it is always best to start in the home. There are many ways in which you can save energy, prevent majority of waste collection going to landfill sites and ensure that items are recycled wherever possible.
Sorting out your waste collection
All local authorities in the UK provide some form of recycle facilities with most local authorities collecting recyclable waste along with regular household waste collection every week or every fortnight. Although if you don’t have the facility of waste collection available to you, there are always places that you can take your recyclable waste such as bins at your local supermarket or local tip for rubbish collection.
The majority of packaging such as plastics, bottles and cardboard can now be recycled and you should be doing your up most to ensure that these items are recycled. It does not take long to separate your recyclable wastes when you are putting your rubbish collection out and most of councils will have provided their residents with special bins for them to put their recyclable waste in to make it easier. You will need to remember to put out your recycling waste collection out on the right day along with your household waste.
