Rocking around recycling


Christmas recycling (large version)A festive fact…Christmas dinner alone will create a mountain of waste including peelings from 240 million sprouts, 105 million potatoes and 20 million carrots across the UK!

It’s the season to be jolly, so in the run up to Christmas our recycling officers will be attending various yuletide events across the county. Full of festive cheer, the team will be on-hand to chat to you about how you can keep you waste in shape this season.

Try our recycling tips:

  • Keep your recycling box next to the bin and tell guests what can be recycled
  • You could get your kids involved in the household recycling routine while they’re on Christmas holidays
  • When you do your big Christmas shop, you could take any recycling that’s not collected from home with you
  • Why not look out for items containing recycled material as gifts this Christmas? A growing range of clothes, furniture and even electrical goods containing some recycled material will make perfect ‘green’ gifts
  • Avoid goods with unnecessary packaging or buy items packaged in recyclable materials
  • Send e-cards or ones made from recycled paper
  • Compost vegetable peelings
  • Buy gift wrap made from recycled paper

We’ll be at the Dorchester Christmas Cracker event on 1 December from 6pm. Find out if we’re attending an event near you.
