5 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Recycle


1. Hairdryers

…and kettles, and irons, and all sorts of other electrical items.

Recycling these means that valuable materials can be re-harvested from them and reused, and toxic materials can be kept from causing serious damage to the environment.


2. Old Paint and Varnish

Yep, getting rid of all that leftover paint from the last time you redecorated (and the time before that, and the time before that…) is as easy as a quick trip to your local recycling centre.

(Don’t pour it down the drain!!)


3. Old Paint and Varnish

A drawer full of old mobiles? Like TVs, computer monitors and smaller electrical items, you can recycle them at most household recycling centres. So if you upgrade your phone, upgrade your habits and get down to your local centre.

4. Reading Glasses

Changed your prescription?

Or sat on your specs?

You can recycle your broken and useless glasses at most recycling centres.


5. Chemicals

Not something you want to have hanging around your home unnecessarily!

But maybe you aren’t sure what to do with them?

Chemicals and pesticides can be safely recycled at many of your local household recycling centre.

So get them out of the way now.
