Recycling around the home

Recycle metals



Metal drinks cans are endlessly recyclable, so it's important to put them in your orange lidded recycling bin. Especially when you consider that each can could be recycled and back on sale in just 60 days!



Other metals you can recycling around the home include:

  • food tins (once rinsed clean)
  • empty aerosols
  • clean foil food trays
  • metal lids from glass jars or bottles - you can leave these on if you recycle your glass bottles and jars at a mini recycling site

Reducing unnecessary packing when we shop

Many of us remember to take our reusable bags to the shops, but did you know several supermarkets now encourage shoppers to take reusable containers to the fresh and deli counters too? 

Lots of cafes also offer a discount for customers who take a reusable coffee cup. 

Why not give it a go on your next visit and reduce the amount of unnecessary packaging being thrown away.
