Going Zero Waste

Tip of the week

Tip of the week

Use a biodegradable waste bag for your rubbish. A great tip is to use one for both your waste and recycling. But don't put the one for recycling in the recycle bin, just empty its contents into the recycle bin and then reuse the biodegradable bag for your general waste bin and get a new one for the recycling and repeat! This way when your rubbish that can't be recycled will be in a biodegradable bag that will disintegrate once in landfill.

Recycling Symbols: 6 – PS – Polystyrene

Cups, foam food trays, packing peanuts. Polystyrene (also known as Styrofoam) is a real problem as it’s bulky yet very lightweight and that makes it difficult to recycle. For example, a carload of expanded polystyrene would weigh next to nothing so there’s not a lot of materials to reclaim, particularly when you take into account the transport getting it to the point of recycling. It can, however, be reused.
