As you go to lift the lids of your recycling and waste bins, you may hesitate over which one to put your “rubbish” in. In a world that’s focusing more on sustainability than ever before, it’s quite essential to consider what you can recycle and what you can’t.
Even though many recycling centres have a list of do’s and don’ts, that doesn’t mean that products not on that list won’t make the cut. Confused about what you can and can’t recycle? Here are a few things you can recycle, but may not have realised.
