It’s infuriating! Every local council seems to have different rules for what can and can’t be put into your household recycling. Some insist you separate things into different containers – glass, paper, plastic, etc. – whilst others let you throw them all in together. Some take glass, whilst others require you to take a trip down to the local bottle bank – fine if you have a car, not so fine for others. And so the differences go on. Then, just when you’re getting used to your local system, the Council decides to change the rules and you’re back to square one.
But there is some help out there. The site https://www.recyclenow.com provides links to information on where and what you can recycle in your area. Type your postcode into their Recycling Locator and they will give you details of what you can recycle plus a link to your local council’s recyclying web site.
