Help Wales get to number one

In Wales, over 94% of us recycle regularly, making our recycling efforts mightier than ever before.

It’s no wonder that Wales is the world’s third top recycling nation. But we won’t stop there. You can help Wales reach the top spot and do your bit for your community and the environment by nailing the following three recycling behaviours:

Recycle your food waste to create energy

Most of us recycle our food waste but we don’t recycle every item, every time. By recycling food waste such as peelings, eggshells, bones, tea bags and coffee grounds, you’re not only doing your bit to help Wales become world leader, you’re also protecting the planet by creating energy. In Wales, when food waste is recycled it’s turned into renewable energy. Just 1 recycled banana peel would charge two smartphones. Discover how

Recycle your plastic toiletry bottles

Be Mighty in the bathroom by joining the 90% of us that recycle empty bottles from the bathroom. If you’re not reusing them, recycle bathroom plastics such as shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, shower gel and cleaning bottles to help Wales smash its next recycling target! Protect our natural resources and save energy. Recycling just 1 shampoo bottle saves enough energy to fully charge 4 iPads!

Help your food and drinks cans live forever

A massive 92% of us recycle our food and drinks cans, which is a mighty thing to do as metal can be recycled again and again without losing its quality. Recycling 1 empty food or drinks can saves enough energy to power a shower for more than 5 minutes.
