Maximise Your Space

  • Please check to make sure that only material that can be recycled is put in your blue bin
  • Please wash and squash all bottles
  • Flat pack all boxes
  • Bulk buy where appropriate on longer life items e.g. a larger box of cereal will produce less packaging than the equal volume spread over smaller boxes. It should be cheaper too!
  • Buy concentrated products in smaller bottles but read the instructions carefully to make sure you use the product properly
  • Reuse plastic tubs for pack lunches, home freezing and general home storage
  • Look for products that can be refilled or returned
  • Stop unwanted mail by using the advice on the Recycling for Scotland web site
