WASTE RECOVERY CAMPAIGN 

Waste recovery gives items a new life... when we do it right. Did you know only 20% of plastic bottles are recycled?

It's not all bad news, thought! In the last 20 years we have improved our rate of recycling from 15% of recyclable household waste to 95%. 

The challenge is many people don't know how to recycle properly... But that's where you can help! Your local council should have a recycling guide where you can learn more about how to recycle, and share this with your community in an engaging way!
