We understand.

It is difficult to recycle.

Let’s simplify it for you, shall we?

This guide is provided by Cheaper than a skip, the number one provider of waste management services in Glasgow. Please sit back, relax, and enjoy this (simple) guide.

In the case of plastic and bottle-shaped items…

There are over 16 million plastic bottles that are not recycled every day in the United Kingdom. We need to change this. Empty your bottles, crush them, and remove the lids before recycling them.

Yes, toothpaste is necessary.

If we all recycled one toothpaste box each, we would be able to save enough energy to run a refrigerator in over 2,000 homes – for an entire year. Toothpaste tubes cannot be recycled. Keep that in mind.

Rinse, rinse, rinse.

Don’t forget to rinse your recycling before recycling. Give pots, tubs, and trays a quick wash before recycling.

  • The importance of lids cannot be overstated.

It may surprise you to learn that, when recycling glass, the lid needs to be left on. Yes, even if it is a metal lid. Or a cap on a bottle.

  • No pizza boxes.

Pizza boxes should not be recycled because of the grease that deposits on them. The grease may cause defects in products made from recycled paper and cardboard.

  • Scrunch test.

Suppose you are unsure whether or not a piece of paper can be recycled. Scrunch it up. If it does not spring back, you can recycle it. If it does, do not recycle it.

  • It squishes. It squashes.

If you squish your bottles and cans before you throw them away, you will save space in your recycling bin and you will be able to transport your recycling more efficiently.
