We now have extended paper and plastic recycling plus now food waste. We have personally gone from filling our landfill bin weekly to putting only 2 or 3 black sacks in each fortnight.
As a company (LawN & Border), with our estate management and general maintenance, we collect and recycle paper, plastic and metal to the tune of about 1500Kg each year and our green waste is between 7000Kg and 15000kg per year.
So I was thinking, what else can we recycle. Only 2 of my customers have water butts. I have 2 in my garden. They are not particularly expensive and relatively easy to install, so consider a water butt for your garden and do your bit to help the planet. Nick
