10 mistakes we make when it comes to recycling
We all understand the importance of recycling (save the planet and all that). But for all recycling’s value, it turns out that most of us still don’t know all the rules.
Can you recycle soft plastics? Are broken glasses allowed? What about batteries? It turns out the answers are not always easy. In fact, one study has shown that 94% of us are recycling at least one item incorrectly. So, what can and can’t go into your yellow-lidded bin*?
*Rules on what you can and can’t recycle can vary from council to council, so you might want to look up the guidelines for your local area.
