It's easy, right? You put it in the green bin, and that's that... However, after talking about recycling, our volunteers found that many people are confused about what items can be put into the recycling bin and what has to be thrown away.
We were even more confused when we went to Norton Recycling Centre, Worcestershire, and were told that many of the things we thought couldn't be recycled, actually can!
The items which can be recycled vary by which area you live in, so check out the Recycle Now web site for more details.
Their web site also tells you the DOs and DON'Ts of what to put in your recycling bin.
