Your local council collects and disposes of household and some commercial waste and can provide you with information on:
what rubbish is collected and when
what goes in your recycling bin
how to report a missed bin collection
how to find your nearest recycling centre
ordering new bins for your home
You can help reduce the amount of rubbish sent to landfill by reusing and recycling as much as you can. Example includes:
getting to know the rules of what you can and cannot recycle
ditching the plastic bags
reducing your use of one-use plastic in favour of reusable containers
making a meal plan (to reduce waste)
repairing rather than discarding
At ForHousing we make every effort to reduce the amount of waste we produce from our operations and from your home. For example, we recycle 100% of waste from any improvement works we carry out.
The average household in the UK produces more than a tonne of waste every year. Put together, that’s a whopping 31 million tonnes we send to landfill - equivalent to the weight of three and a half million double-decker buses, a queue of which would go around the world two and a half times. We are all responsible for dealing with waste.
