Consumer Information Obligation
Want to recycle more, or help someone benefit from your waste?
Great. Your waste may actually have some value, so we’ve complied some information that could help you recycle more of it, and perhaps even help someone else benefit . If you can’t see the information you’re looking for, please just drop us a line.
We’ve a database of companies – many in the North West and Yorkshire – who can help take your waste for recycling. Using these companies can help reduce the amount of landfill and any associated costs. Drop us a line to see if we have someone who can help you.
If you think your waste products might be useful to someone else, you can try offering it on Freecycle
You can also try the following link to find a waste recycler:
The Environment Agency has a register of all licensed waste contractors.
Don’t forget; waste contractors must be either licensed by, or hold an exemption from, the Environment Agency, and they must have a waste carrier/broker/dealer licence. The site your waste is going to must have a licence or exemption too, and you’ll need to make sure you keep a written record of any waste that’s taken away.
For domestic waste see www.recyclenow.com to find your closest recycling site, or contact the recycling officer at your local council. You can also check the link at the bottom of the page to see an explanation of the most common recycling symbols.
I recently received an email from a Amanda and Meghan who have been learning about reduce, reuse and recycle with www.learninghaven.com. They sent us this link which has lots really cool links to other resources about Reduce, reuse and Recycle. Thank you ladies.
