The Rubbish Book: A Complete Guide to Recycling

Plastic bottles, cardboard boxes, aluminium cans… we all get through a lot of rubbish, but do you really know what happens after you put it in the bin? Do you even know which bin it goes in? Recycling has never been more important – but it has also never been more complicated.

Where do you put your bottle lids? Why can’t some plastics be recycled? What do you do with labels? How are batteries collected? Can you put recycling in bin bags? Why do the rules vary from place to place?

The Rubbish Book answers these questions and more, providing you with all the information you need to become a true recycling expert, so you can help protect the planet with confidence.

Written by an award-winning sustainability professional, it includes an A–Z of waste items and whether they can be recycled, a break-down of what the recycling symbols on our packaging actually mean, and an insight into the future of recycling and the new materials that will change how we look at rubbish for ever.
