What to do with your waste


It is increasingly important to reduce the amount of waste we produce and to make best use of what we already have.

This means:

  • buying sustainably
  • choosing re-usable products
  • buying only what we need
  • repairing or repurposing existing items where possible
  • recycling what we no longer want
  • only throwing away items that have no further use or value (either for ourselves or other people)

If we treat all our waste in this way, it will help save precious resources and minimise the impact on our local, national and global environment.

We can all make a difference by revisiting our daily habits and thinking more carefully about what we buy, whether it’s food, clothing or household items. There are many easy switches that can drastically reduce the amount of waste that goes into the bin, such as:

  • buying smart. Try to choose products with minimal packaging that is also recyclable; or better still, no packaging at all. Buy local where possible
  • avoiding food waste: Plan your weekly meals and only buy what you actually need. Freeze what you don’t use. You can use left-overs for tomorrow’s lunch or dinner; there are great recipe ideas on-line


Disposable nappies can’t be reused and are difficult to recycle. Switching to cloth nappies, even once or twice per day, can reduce the use of disposable nappies significantly over the course of a year.

You can find out about the great benefits to using cloth nappies:

  • save money
  • better for the environment
  • easy to use
  • plenty of choice
