But what happens to the bottles that make it to the recycling centre? This video from Recycle Now takes us through the process.
Want to recycle your plastic bottles?
Plastic bottles are widely collected by local councils. You can also take them to recycling facilities; use the Recycling Locator tool to find your nearest facility.
Unfortunately we’re all getting so used to seeing the terrible images of plastic pollution around the world, that we’re almost becoming immune to them. Even statistics that tell us how EVERYDAY approx 8 million tonnes of plastic finds its way into our oceans, have lost their ability to shock. That’s why we created #OneSmallThingMyNI to highlight some of the small everyday things you can do to reduce your use of plastic in the hope that together we can motivate and encourage others to reduce, reuse and recycle too.
