6. Recycling bins

Recycling bins with seperate compartments for recyclables, compost and landfill We separate our rubbish into recyclables, compost and landfill. Our local council recycles all paper, magazines, cardboard and junk mail as well as all glass and certain types of plastic. There is a notice displayed by the bin because it's sometimes difficult to know which plastics are recyclable and
which aren't.

All our food scraps that can't be composted
go into a different bin for my sister's
chickens.

There is only a small amount of
rubbish in our bin that can't
be recycled.

We try not to buy anything that
comes in too much packaging,
so then there is less to throw away.
