What can I Recycle?

Recycling is a simple way that you, as a consumer, can help out the environment!

Recycling is the process of taking a product at the end of its useful life and using all or part of it to make another product. The internationally recognized symbol for recycling includes three arrows moving in a triangle. Each arrow represents a different part of the recycling process, from collection to re-manufacture to resale.

Recycling is very important in diverting waste from landfills.

Recycling services differ within municipalities. The main form of recycling and easiest for most people is Kerbside Recycling. ‘Recyclable’ products are collected and reprocessed to produce new items. Common recyclable materials are: paper, cardboard, plastic, glass, aluminium, and electronic waste. Recycling everything you can through kerbside recycling saves energy and water and reduces landfill.

Here are some basic recycling flowcharts and information on what you can recycle.
