Household recycling


Each household produces around one tonne of rubbish every year.

In the UK, households throw away over 26.8 million tonnes of waste. That is the same weight as 3.83 million male African Elephants!

The Recycle-more Team understands that there is a lot of confusion around the various different symbols that can be found on products and packaging. With this in mind we have put together a simple symbols guide.
