Household waste management and recycling

Do you know how to cut down on your household waste and what items can be recycled? This page will give you links to information about your local recycling service and how to better manage what you throw away.

Household Waste 

The average household in the UK produces more than a tonne of waste every year. We can reduce this by being aware of what we throw away. First, follow this guide to help to reduce the amount of waste we generate.

Second, try to reuse items again. By finding other uses for everyday items, we can reduce the amount that goes into our rubbish bins.

Finally, recycling is another way that we can help to improve the amount of waste that affects our environment. An online recycling guide can tell you which items that can be recycled and tips on how to dispose of them properly.

To find out what recycling services are available in your area, please search for your local authority and follow the links to their website.

You can also find recycling stations at your local Waste Centre.
