Why reuse and recycle?

By reusing or recycling we are:

  • Contributing to the conservation of natural resources.
  • Saving energy.
  • Helping to protect the environment.
  • Reducing landfill.

Our priorities

  • To ensure that we reuse rather than recycle.
  • To recycle rather than incinerate for energy recovery.
  • To recover energy rather than just burn or send to landfill.
  • By applying the principles of the waste hierarchy we will ensure that we do not waste valuable resources.

We will also reduce our impact on the environment by minimising the carbon emissions associated with both disposing of old products and obtaining new ones.
