You might feel saintly because you’re doing your bit and recycling as much as you can, but do you realise that a lot of what we recycle is often too contaminated to be processed so it ends up in the landfill? For this week’s recycling challenge, we want to challenge you to make sure you put the right things in your recycling bin, and to make sure they’re as clean as possible before you do!
The Local Government Association (LGA) has released a report stating that recycling is too complicated, and calling on the government to force producers to pay for disposing of their waste instead of taxpayers.
