How good at recycling are you?
This year, as part of National Recycling Week, Planet Ark have created a list of golden rules which are great guide for effective recycling;

Stay Loose - Recycling goes into the bin loose – never in a plastic bag, and keep other soft plastic out too.

Easy does it - Simple materials like paper, cardboard, glass jars and bottles, metal cans and aerosols, cartons and rigid plastics are easy to recycle and accepted in almost all kerbside collections.

Into the Garbage -  Crockery, window and drink-ware glass, polystyrene, plastic bags, nappies and food are the big baddies in the recycling.

Keep It Clean-ish - Recycling does not need to be spotless – just scrape of solid food and give it a quick rinse.

Drop ‘Em Off - Kerbside systems cannot separate items like mobiles, computers, batteries and printer cartridges – find local drop off services.

If in doubt - Leave it out! Putting the wrong thing in the wrong bin can ruin your good recycling efforts.

Go to Planet Ark's National Recycling Week website for more great ideas and tips.
