Common Recycling Errors We Make at Home

We can all admit that we’ve all tried to contribute at least a little bit towards the environment.

But did you know you may be recycling incorrectly?

It’s so easy to look past the important parts of recycling – things as simple as keeping the lid on plastic bottles!

Our team at Rubbish Clearance Essex specialise in rubbish removal services carried out in Basildon and the surrounding areas of Essex.

All staff are here waiting to take your call on 0800 138 9100.

What can be avoided?

Here are a few household items that are easy to get confused about and how to ensure that your waste is being dealt with properly:

1. Containers

It is essential that any contained food products that may include muck still inside, are rinsed and dried before being placed in the recycling bin.

2. Plastics

You might not be aware that not all dark-coloured plastics can be recycled – make sure to separate them from other plastics!

3. Glass Materials

Certain glass products like mirrors, for example, cannot be recycled and should be placed in a household bin or included in rubbish collections.

Never throw these away!

It can be easy to put things in the bin we know we really shouldn’t!

Someone else will sort them out, right?

Unfortunately, this approach isn’t doing the Basildon or Essex Council any favours!

It is important you don’t throw away:

  • Electronic Items 
  • Light Bulbs 
  • Paint 
  • Used Batteries
