The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
Christmas time turns my thoughts to rubbish.
Extra stuff that creates waste. So while sliming through the photos I had a flashback.
Now’s the time to sort that rubbish out.
Our local recycling centre has excellent sorting facilities.
The wagons that collect waste in our area come for green waste and general waste every week. Our paper collection comes once a month.
At this time of year in early January so collection is done just for Christmas trees. These will be composted and added to different projects. In the UK in some areas, Christmas trees are added to the back of beaches to help create artificial sand dunes.
At home we separate batteries, light bulbs and electrical goods along with any chemical containers, paint etc. These can be brought to this section at the dump.
How do you ensure your waste is properly taken care of?
