Why recycle?

Ten years ago, the UK recycled less than 5% of waste from around the home. Today, around 40% of our household waste is recycled in East Sussex, but we could recycle more. Recycling more from around the home helps save money that can be spent on other essential Council services. If every household in East Sussex recycled one more shampoo bottle we would save enough energy to power a typical primary school for 37 days.
