Increasing recycling

While we are still formulating our Mission Statement for the new environmental intitiative, we thought we might as well get on with improving the recycling system around the centre. Kind of a no-brainer really. We got new bins, new signs, and contacted our recycling company Greener World about what kinds of things we can recycle. We have actually been recycling for some time but were often unsure about what we can recycle these days as it seems to change.

We then got interested in what is recycled here in the UK and what goes to China and is that bad?

THEN we got to thinking that surely whilst it is admirable to recycle everything we possibly can, maybe we are simply producing too much? Ray has offered to do an autopsy of the recycling and rubbish. Rather him than me!
