To Recycle or Not to Recycle – Recycling Hints and Tips

Despite me being the grown up I regularly seem to be lectured by my 8 year old on what I can and can’t put into my recycling box and bag. I’m pretty certain that it is his eagle-eyed nature and willingness to tell me I’m not recycling properly that has saved me from receiving one of the Stickers of Shame that the local recycling crew stick on your box when you’ve broken the rules.

Generally speaking I’m actually not too horrendous about recycling, simply busy. however it is worth reminding ourselves from time to time not only what the local recycling services will take but also what the different recycling labels means and what may be reused and recycled.

This fab infographic from EcoMovers breaks it down a bit, making it easy to visualise what we can and can’t recycle. Hopefully it’ll keep your recycling mad kids happy and the council recycling crew’s “You’ve been naughty” stickers safely tucked away!
