Recycle your dry waste

Collect all your paper, cardboard, tins, glass and plastics, and locate a recycling centre in your area. If you are a student, fnd out if there is a recycling depot at your school or college – supporting their recycling initiative could be making money for your school, and help to create extra jobs.

Separate your waste

Separate your waste into different categories. A great way to do this is to use old milk crates, and to label them ‘glass’, ‘paper’, ‘cardboard’ ,‘tins’ and ‘plastic’. Keep a separate bin for your wet waste. Fold or crush recyclable items as small as possible, and wait until your bins are completely full before you make a trip to your recycling depot and drop everything off together.
