The three 'Rs' of recycling - reduce, reuse and recycle - can help us all to reduce our household waste.
By reducing, reusing and recycling, we can:
- Help the environment - dumping our waste in landfill sites generates liquid and gases which add to global warming and pollution.
- Reduce the demand for raw materials like paper and metal and decrease the impact on the environment through extraction, processing and transport costs.
- Help to control the growth of your council tax - as the rising costs of waste disposal will impact on your council tax payments.
