Do your recycling

Recycling Collection Boxes outside Bristol home

Description

In Bristol we recycle almost every kind of household waste – from newspapers and engine oil to aerosols and food waste. We also have services for collecting electrical goods and hazardous waste such as chemicals and medicines, and recycling centres where you can drop off larger goods.

Recycling uses less energy and produces less pollution than making things from scratch. For example, making aluminium cans from old ones uses only one twelfth of the energy than making them new.

Recycling your waste is one of the easiest ways to reduce your carbon footprint, and it’s a change you can start making right away.
