About Us - Recycling

Recycling conserves our valuable natural resources!

  • Recycling helps to conserve our natural resources such as oil, metal and water.
  • For example plastic bottles can be recycled into new plastic bottles and polyester fibres for use in fleece jumpers and car mats.
  • By recycling we reduce the amount of natural resources needed to make products and packaging.
  • Also less mining and extraction occurs, which is beneficial to the natural habitats of wild animals.

Recycling saves energy!

  • Recycling aluminium saves 95% of the energy required to produce aluminium from raw materials.
  • Recycling just one plastic bottle will save enough energy to power a 60 watt light bulb for 3 hours!

Recycling protects the environment!

  • Recycling helps to conserve energy, so less greenhouse gases are emitted.
  • Recycling reduces our dependence on landfill.
  • With less materials going to landfill, less harmful emissions like methane gas are released into the earth’s atmosphere

Recycling can save you money!

  • By putting more recyclable materials into your recycling bin you reduce the amount of times you have to put your general refuse or black bin out for collection.
  • It is usually more expensive to collect the black bin than the recycling bin, so recycling can save you money
