Waste Savvy Staffs

Did you know?

On average, in the UK, we throw away our own bodyweight in rubbish every seven weeks.

The average person also uses three times their share of the world's resources. 

We all need to think differently about what we buy and try to reduce the amount of waste we produce.

What can we do?

The best thing we can do for the environment is to reduce the amount of waste we create. 

After reducing our waste, the second best option is to reuse items.

If you can't reduce or reuse, the next best thing to do is to recycle your unwanted items.

Simple things that you can do:

Learn how to reduce your food waste

Get into composting

Find your local Home Waste Recycling Centre

Volunteer to teach more people how to reduce their waste

Join the Waste Savvy Staffs Facebook page for regular tips on waste and recycling

Understand what happens to your waste
