Some towns and cities have separate recycling bins in the street so that you can recycle on the go as well as at home. When out and about check before throwing things away to make sure you’re recycling as much as you can.
You can also put it in your recycling bin when you get home.
By composting your kitchen scraps and garden waste at home you can transform your household waste into nutrient rich compost, which will help to improve the quality of your soil for free! Home composting is easy to set up, can save you money and reduce your impact on the environment.
For information on how to get started visit the Recycle Now composting website.
You can buy compost bins at a number of outlets such as your local garden centre, from the Get Composting Website or you could even try making your own from re-used materials.
