"This year’s campaign ‘Recycling – it’s worth it’ is designed to encourage us all to recycle more of the right things from all around the home. Our research shows that in the UK, whilst almost 90% of people claim to regularly recycle from the kitchen, only 52% say they regularly recycle from the bathroom. Yet recycling just three empty deodorant cans can save enough energy to power a shower for eight minutes. And those recycled aerosols could come back as parts for mobile phones, dishwashers or even as another aerosol can.
It is these value and transformational messages we want to get across throughout this Recycle Week. And not just for dry recycling items, but food waste too. We know that understanding the importance of food waste recycling and what happens to recycled food once collected has increased, however awareness of it still lags behind dry recycling – so this will be a key area of focus next week."
