It's world environment day (05.06.23). With this in mind, here are our 5 top tips on how to do your bit to save the environment.
1. Rinse that recycling
Most empty packaging from our kitchens (or households in general) can be recycled. In order for recyclables to be processed, they should be clean and placed in the correct recycling bin. Removing waste food and rinsing used packaging, gives it the best chance of being recycled – dirty packaging could be rejected and end up in landfill. Materials suitable for kerbside collection can vary between Councils throughout the UK. Generally, the following are widely accepted: Glass bottles, foil trays, clear plastic food containers and drinks bottles (made from PET, rPET, HDPE), paper and card.
