Managing your waste for a greener future

What goes in my bin?

 

It is incredibly important that we recycle, not only will it save you money but it is vastly important to the environment and the future. Ireland’s landfills are filling up quicker than we realise, therefore, landfill prices will continue to rise.

Although, we can easily prevent this by REDUCING, REUSING & RECYCLING.

The Average family (2 Adults, 2 Kids) produces 25 Kilos of waste over a fortnightly basis but did you know over 75% of your waste can be recycled…

Please see www.recyclinglistireland.ie to see what can and cannot be recycled
