THE DO'S & DONT'S OF RECYCLING YOUR WASTE

  1. SNUB-Say no to unwanted bags. Always use a reusable shopping bag or reuse plastic bags. Tell the shop assistant you don't want a bag if you don't need one.
  2. Compost it-Those vegetable peelings and uncooked leftovers(no meat) can get your garden off to a good start next year. Making compost is easy and a compost bin is a useful thing to have in any garden. It cuts down on the landfill problem.
  3. Re-cycle it-Check out your local re-cycling points supplied by your local council. Find out where your nearest point is from the list below.
