I’ve got so much more to give
When you’ve finished with me, please, PLEASE recycle me. Our little planet’s resources are running out – and recycling is one of the ways we can help to look after what’s left, reduce the amount of rubbish sent to landfill, and even shrink our carbon footprint.
It’s getting easier to recycle me – right now, 92% of the UK’s councils collect me. Two thirds collect me from your home with the rest of your recycling, and another quarter will take me from your local recycling point too.
To recycle me, just squash me right down, put my cap back on, and send me on another adventure. My paperboard can be made into cardboard tubes and cores – so I might come back inside your paper towel, or used to hold your hot chocolate or gravy. And my polymers and aluminium might be turned into garden furniture or building materials.
