Top recycling tips at home

Recycling at homeRecycling is a major consideration for us and we are dedicated to recycling everything possible to reduce waste going to landfill sites. When we collect your skips, we will separate your rubbish in order to recycle as much of the waste as possible. However, there are many elements of recycling that you yourself can do at home as well to cut down on your normal household waste. Here are few of our top tips.

Tip #1 Donate to charity
A great way to reduce waste is to consider donating your clothes and other household items to charity. Just because you no longer want the item, doesn’t mean someone else will not benefit from it. As long as they are in good enough condition, you should take your clothes to your local charity shop. With donation bags distributed to homes, stores across the country and donation banks at a lot of supermarkets, there are many ways you can give your unwanted clothes to someone in need.

Tip #2 Repurpose items
This requires a bit of creativity but it’s great when you can discover another use for an item that you would otherwise have just thrown away. For example, you can use old woks, pots and painted cans and create plant pots for outside, or you can use the material from old clothes to create a blanket. The possibilities are endless.

Tip #3: Don’t waste leftovers
When it comes to food, try and reduce the amount you throw away. A lot of leftovers can make lovely meals. If you have slightly older vegetables that need using, make a soup rather than automatically throwing them away. Composting is another great option for food waste. It reduces your household waste and helps you keep your garden healthy.

Waste is a problem that is continuing to increase, so by doing small things to try and reduce this waste wherever possible we can collectively make a huge impact.

Tip #4: Make some money
Even if you no longer want some items, they could be seen as valuable to other people who will be willing to pay for it. All it takes is for you to give up some time to list the items online to sell and you will be surprised how much money you can make. If you have old electrical items that no longer work as well, you can take them to specialised shops that may buy them off you and restore them to resell.

Tip #5: Get the whole family involved
The best way to ensure you continue recycling wherever possible is getting the whole family involved so recycling and reducing waste becomes part of your daily life. If you have young children, then set them recycling challenges and reward them when they have done a good job. Label your bins so they know what can go in which one and talk about the benefits of recycling, so they know they have to continue as they grow older.

These tips are easy to do but can still create a great impact and reduce the levels of waste in your home. All it takes is a bit of creativity, time and effort.
