The Pledge:

Recycling rates are increasing in the UK, but so is our population. We are producing more goods and using more natural resources than ever before, but despite our best efforts, we are still throwing too many things away.

Are you wondering what more you could do to maximize your recycling efforts or even better, reduce the amount of waste you produce? Looking around your house, what other disposable items do you see? Which are recycling or non-recycling? Which are you unsure about?

Small Action Big Impact will provide you with all the answers to your questions, with all the things that you may be unsure about and what to do with them. Along with tips and services for you to apply to your household or workplace.


We can all make a big impact with small easy actions

Its estimated that up to 80% of the contents of our dustbins could be easily recycled or composted.
