A – Z, Recycling the hard-to-recycle

Did you know recycling is one of the least favoured ways to manage waste? Prevention, minimisation and reusing are more favoured options.Image result for waste pyramid

BUT recycling is still better than landfill so let’s see what’s on offer in Worcestershire…

 

 

The basics

Is your item so hard to recycle? Check your Council’s website to see if it can go in your green bin:

Bromsgrove District Council – Green Bin
Malvern Hills District Council – Green Bin 
Redditch Borough Council – Green Bin
Worcester City –  Green Bin
Wychavon District Council – Green Bin
Wyre Forest District Council – Green Bin

Or what about at one of Worcestershire’s 11 local household recycling centres?

Still not?
