What does my recycling become?

Aluminium Cans

Al-Cans
Aluminium cans can be recycled repeatedly. Recycling aluminium cans uses a fraction of the energy that it takes to make new cans from scratch. Recycled aluminium cans are used in everything from CDs to aircraft.

Glass Bottles and Containers

Bottles
Glass can be recycled repeatedly and recycled glass containers are made into bottles, jars, fibreglass insulation and reflective road signage. Recycled glass can also be used as a sand substitute in asphalt and concrete or for pipe embedment.

Tip

Dark-triangle

Worms are fantastic for keeping your compost healthy, by moving around they are constantly keeping things aerated.

When you first start your compost, grab some worms out of the garden and they’ll soon multiply.

If you can’t find any worms in your garden, you can always grab a container from your local fishing store.
