Synopsis

What do you do with your old mobile phone? Where can you take your old medicines? Which plastic is recyclable? What happens to the stuff you recycle?

This easy-to-use guide has the answers to all your recycling questions. Use its A-Z listing of everyday household items to see how you can recycle most of your unwanted things, do your bit for the planet, and maybe make a bit of money while you're at it.

Did you know that: Around 60% of your rubbish can be recycled, but only 11% is recycled (half is sent to landfill)  Landfill sites are running out  Recycling a one-metre stack of newspaper saves one tree  It costs £332 million a year to clean up the litter on Britain's streets  A plastic vending cup can be made into a pencil or a pen  You can make money recycling your aluminium cans  150 million plastic carrier bags are used in the UK each week - they last up to 500 years in landfill.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle is packed with ideas for cutting your consumption, reducing your rubbish, reusing, and recycling. It will also tell you where your old plastic goes to, what happens to your old glass jars, how they handle waste in other countries. With a comprehensive resources section and information on getting more involved, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle is an invaluable guide for anyone who wants to slim their bin and help stop the earth going to waste.
