Many people know that they should put recyclable products into their recycling bins every week, but recycling is also about re-using or re-purposing items that you would otherwise throw away.
As an example, home renovators can be innovative and re-use items to help create a unique and special item for their home, while saving an item from ending up in landfill.
Some recycling (or commonly termed as up-cycling) ideas that you might like to try include:
Before you throw anything away, ask yourself if it could take on a new lease of life, or consider donating it or selling it if it’s still in reasonable condition.
Don’t forget that as well as recycling, we should all be reducing and rethinking our choices when we’re looking to buy something new. It’s everyone’s responsibility to reduce our environmental impact, so think about your shopping choices and the impact that they’re having on the local and global community.
