Careless recycling is undoing green efforts

April 10, 2018

Research conducted by the British Science foundation has shown that people are more aware than ever of the environmental benefits of recycling, but that most are confused by what items can and can’t be recycled in their kerbside collections. Unfortunately this leads to an awful lot of contamination and recyclable materials being unnecessarily sent to landfill.

The Scottsman has a nice summary here; https://www.scotsman.com/news/environment/careless-recycling-is-undoing-green-efforts-1-4706520

If you are unsure of what can or can’t be recycled where you live in Leicestershire, please contact your District council and ask for more information. Contacts can be found here.
