In Greater Manchester, we are currently recycling 45% of our rubbish. By putting the right stuff in the right bin we can recycle even more.
East steps to recycle right:
1. Know what you can recycle
Visit Recycling in your Area for information about recycling at home and locate your nearest Recycling Centre.
2. Check for recycling in every room
As well as recycling the stuff from your living room and kitchen, don't forget the rooms upstairs, especially your bathroom.
3. Make sure items are empty
Just give your bottles and jars a quick rinse before you put them in your recycling bin.
4. Keep recycling out of plastic bags
Put your recycling loose in your mixed recycling bin and paper and card bin
Only use compostable liners to put your food waste in
5. Keep these items out of your recycling bin
All the mixed recycling from homes in Greater Manchester is sorted at the Materials Recovery Facility in Manchester.
