We live in a throwaway society; it is estimated that the UK generated around 222 million tonnes of waste in 2018 (UK GOV). But how can we live in a waste –free world?
Reducing your waste is an easy way to reduce your carbon footprint. Recycling is too – as it saves energy and the need to source new materials from the ground. Recycling an aluminium can uses 95% less energy than it would to source it directly from raw materials.
One of the council’s key missions is to ensure as much waste as possible is recycled. Find out more about recycling services across the Borough.
